2 pounds thin green beans cut into 2-inch pieces (4 cups)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound cherry tomatoes, halved (2 cups)
2 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
Freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
In a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water, cook the green beans uncovered for 7 to 9 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse in cold water. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, and salt. Pour the dressing over the green beans and toss well. Fold in the tomatoes and goat cheese, then add pepper to taste.
To make up to 2 days ahead, prepare and store separately in the refrigerator: green beans, dressing, tomatoes, and cheese. Combine up to 3 hours before serving.
Terrific and simple recipe. The goat cheese makes this salad, but the amount is just perfect to add that special flavor to the green beans and dressing. This will be my go-to cool salad dish for the future!
