Green Beans with Poppy Seed Dressing

These warm, fresh-tasting beans offer an exciting alternative to old standby mushroom-soup-based green-bean casseroles. Toasting the poppy seeds brings out their nutty flavor.

Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar, or rice-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound green beans, stem ends trimmed

Cooking Directions

Step 1

To prepare dressing: Heat a small dry skillet over medium-low heat. Add poppy seeds and toast, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to a small bowl (or jar) and let cool. Add oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, shallot, salt and pepper; whisk (or shake) until blended.

Step 2

To prepare beans: Cook beans in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain. Warm the dressing in a large skillet over medium heat. Add beans and toss to coat.
