In this salad, tender haricots verts get tossed with crunchy strips of carrot, red pepper and parsnip. When TV personality Rachael Ray (who is originally from upstate New York) visited the Beekman farm, Lee Woolver made a version of this salad with bacon, but it's just as delicious without.
Green Bean Recipes
1 1/4 pounds haricots verts (thin green beans)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
1 medium carrot, cut into fine julienne
1 medium parsnip, cut into fine julienne
1 red bell pepper, cut into fine julienne
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 hard-cooked egg, chopped, for garnish (optional)
How to Make It
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the beans until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain, rinse and pat dry.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderate heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the vinegar, water, mustard, honey and celery seeds. Add the carrot, parsnip, red pepper and onion and toss until warmed through, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the beans and toss well. Add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce and season with salt and pepper. Garnish the slaw with the chopped egg and serve warm or at room temperature.
The cooked beans and dressed mixed vegetables can be refrigerated separately overnight. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Review Body: I didn't have haricots vests only regular green beans I had to make my own dijon mustard but had every other ingredient and my husband who squawks at veggies took a second helping. I felt the carrot and parsnip needed blanching because they were too hard even though I julienned them as directed. I plan to make this dish as a side for a baby shower I will cater soon.

Review Body: Great salad, very refreshing. I think the next time I make it, the only modification I would make is the cut the haricots verts down into smaller pieces. We'll see, it may not look as pretty that way, but I think it would make it easier to get a taste of everything in one bite.
Bonus to this recipe, is that it keeps well for a day or two... if you have leftovers!
