Tarragon Green Beans

Why have plain green beans when you can add a ton more flavor in just seconds. Mix in some yellow beans for added color, and be sure to use fresh tarragon – it makes all the difference!


Steam beans until tender-crisp, about 7-10 minutes. DijonTarragonGreenBeans2

When garlic is used raw, it’s best to finely chop it with a knife rather than use a garlic press. A garlic press crushes the entire clove breaking all its cells open, releasing all of the garlic’s pungent compounds. Using a knife damages less cells, therefor the dressing will have a much milder garlic flavor.

Whisk dressing ingredients together until emulsified, then toss with warm beans and serve.DijonTarragonGreenBeans3

When used raw, it's best to finely chop the garlic with a knife rather than use a garlic press. A garlic press crushes the entire clove and breaks all its cells open which releases the pungent oils. Using a knife damages less cells, therefor the garlic will not have such a harsh bite in the dressing.
