Goddess Salad with Haricots Verts and Feta

This bright-flavored salad, from chef-owner Robert Moore, combines Bibb lettuce, haricots verts, feta cheese and hard-boiled eggs in a fresh thyme dressing. "It's the perfect salad for lunch or dinner," says Moore. It's also one of the few salads that's great almost any time of year.

How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan of salted boiling water, cook the haricots verts until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and cool under running water; pat dry.

  2. In a mini processor, combine the shallot, garlic, mustard, cider vinegar and lemon juice and process until smooth. With the machine on, add the canola oil in a thin stream. Add the thyme and pulse until minced. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the torn lettuce, crumbled feta, sliced cucumber, quartered eggs and haricots verts. Add three-fourths of the dressing and toss to coat. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and serve.

Make Ahead
