  • 1 ½ pounds fresh green beans
  • ½ large Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large beefsteak tomato, cut into thin wedges

Dijon Vinaigrette:

  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup light olive oil

Tips & Notes

Tomatoes should be stored at room temperature; refrigeration dulls their flavor. Use within a week.



  1. Blanch green beans in a pot of boiling water until crisp tender, about 2-3 minutes. Drain and let cool.

  2. Whisk together first 5 vinaigrette ingredients in bowl. Slowly whisk in oil until emulsified.

  3. Toss green beans, onion, tomato and dressing. Add salt and pepper if necessary.
