These simple steamed green beans get a tangy kick from a quick cider vinegar sauce.

  1. 3/4 pound green beans
  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 medium shallot, minced
  4. 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  5. 1 teaspoon sugar
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Place the green beans in a steamer basket set over a large saucepan of boiling water. Steam until bright green and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat the oil. Add the shallot and cook over high heat, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and sugar; stir to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and add the beans. Season with salt and pepper, toss well and serve.
