Green Beans in Dijon Dressing

14 Jul

green beans in Dijon dressing

Go buy Saveur Magazine.

It has the best recipes.

This is basically their recipe.

One pound of trimmed green beans

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 teaspoons whole grain Dijon mustard

One minced shallot or 1/2 small onion with one clove of minced garlic

1/2 diced red pepper

Place the beans in a pot of salted water for about a minute.

Strain the water.

You want the beans crunchy

Mix the oil, mustard, vinegar and shallots

Add to the beans and add the red pepper for garnish

This is a typical Saveur recipe because it is easy, fast and delicious.

I served it with fresh fish.


Angies no measure salad

Angie's Salad

My Mom used to make this salad almost every night.

It is still one of my favorites.

2 or 3 ripe diced tomatoes

1 diced cucumber

1 diced onion

1 diced red peper

1 head of chopped romaine lettuce

One handful of arugula

2 or 3 cubed Italian rolls

Now this is when there isn’t any measuring.

4 shakes of garlic powder

4 shakes of garlic salt

8 shakes of oregano

about 1/2 cup red wine vinegar

3/4 cup olive oil and you have to use olive oil.

Whatever olives you have in the refrigerator.

Toss and make sure the bread is absorbing all the  juices.

Thats it!

Sometimes I add feta, goat or chunks of parmesan cheese but most of the time I keep it plain.

Just like Moms.
