Ingredients

  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoon walnut oil
  • 12 ounces haricots verts, (see Ingredient Note) or green beans, stem ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoon coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

To prepare dressing: Whisk shallot, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in oil.
