Green Beans with a Mustard & Caper Vinaigrette

Remember last year when I had a real thing for dill? Well, this year it seems to be capers. I’ve found myself putting them on everything! (Except ice cream, you should never put capers on ice cream.) I know, it’s really random…like I can’t control my own taste buds. Anyway, for those of you who also can’t get enough of capers, or anything tart and savory, this dish is for you. The flavor on these beans is powerful, so I suggest pairing it with a chicken dish or something that’s a little lighter on the taste buds.

  • 1 lb. fresh green beans
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard (I used Grey Poupon)
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  • Sprinkle of shredded parm cheese

Steam or boil the green beans for roughly 20 minutes until tender and bright green. Submerge in a bowl of ice water to chill, you’ll want to serve these cold. While the beans chill out, in a large bowl mix together the rest of the ingredients – white wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, dijon mustard, capers, and the salt and pepper. Toss in the beans until full coated and top with shredded parm cheese. That’s it!
