Haricots Verts with Warm Shallot Vinaigrette

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 1 1/3 cups)
"Haricots verts" (ah-ree-koh VEHR) is French for "green beans." These beans are small, slender, and vivid green. If you can't find haricots verts, substitute regular green beans and increase the cooking time to five minutes.

  • 1 1/2 pounds haricots verts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots (about 2 large)
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
