Bean Salad with Shrimp and Curry Yogurt

    Really quite good, and perfect for a warm summer evening. You could definitely serve this to guests - chilled white wine and something like grilled flatbread triangles and raw veggies with hummus would make a simple but elegant summer menu. The only thing I did differently was toss some diced onions in when sautéing the shrimp instead of using minced raw shallots, just because I wanted to use them up. (Also added a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.) The curry yogurt is tasty but almost feels extraneous; you could skip it entirely and the shrimp and bean mixture is still delicious on it's own. When I make this again I'll probably try it that way. A keeper!

    Very pleasantly surprised this was so yummy! I served the shrimp and the green beans separately and the curry yogurt with the shrimp as a dipping sauce. Also grilled some bread, but grilled naan would have been better! Can't wait to make it again and serve to guests.

    Holy cow was this delicious. I am all moony over tarragon right now in light of this dish. I totally agree about the yogurt curry sauce though. It was yummy but we hardly used any because the vinaigrette was so fabulous on its own. I can't wait to try it over grilled cauliflower, or summer squash, or broccoli. I think the flavors would also marry equally well with salmon rather than shrimp, though the shrimp was tasty.
