Green Beans With Warm Shallot Vinaigrette

As a cook and recipe developer, I’m always looking to make things a little more special, especially for a holiday. This green bean recipe is a nice change of pace. The warm shallot dressing dresses up the green beans and is handy for any other favorite veggie or salad. Warm dressing on a cold salad is always a great textural contrast.

For trimming the stems from the green beans I used a 2-3/4" Paring Knife. The sharp, small blade is easy to control and makes a clean cut.

When you’re ready to mix together the warm vinaigrette, reach for Cutco’s Mix-Stir. This little coil whisk really is wonderful for emulsifying the ingredients, right in the saucepan.

This recipe is a nice change from the calorie-laden green bean casserole that’s so popular during the holidays. It’s both light and flavorful.
