Ingredients

  • 1 slice bacon

  • ½ pound thin French green beans (haricots verts)

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard

  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon bacon drippings

  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot

Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slice on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool and crumble bacon. Reserve 1 teaspoon of bacon drippings.

  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans, recover, and steam until just tender, 3 minutes.

  3. Whisk together olive oil, Dijon-style mustard, vinegar, bacon drippings, and shallot in a bowl. Toss hot, steamed green beans in a bowl with the dressing and crumbled bacon, and serve.

Cook's Note

To make the dressing in a blender, place the olive oil, Dijon-style mustard, vinegar, bacon drippings, and shallot into blender, cover, and puree until smooth.
