Recipe Time

Prep: 30 Minutes
Chill: 8 Hours


3 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
3 shallots, cut into pieces
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon coarse-grained mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
3 Red Delicious apples, thinly sliced
Bibb lettuce


1. Cook green beans in boiling water to cover 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain. Plunge immediately into cold water to stop the cooking process; drain. Place in a zip-top plastic bag.

2. Process shallots and next 5 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Turn blender on high; add oil in a slow, steady stream. Pour over beans; seal and chill 8 hours, turning occasionally. Add apple, tossing to coat; drain.

3. Arrange beans and apple on a lettuce-lined plate.
