Steamed Green Beans with Tomato-Garlic Vinaigrette

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)
The heady, tangy vinaigrette complements the crisp, sweet green beans. Use a garlic press, if you have one, to crush the garlic for this summery dressing; a press crushes garlic into small pieces, encouraging good-for-you compounds to develop.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup seeded chopped tomato
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
