Marinated Green Beans

Feeds 2 as part of a meal

Good handful of French green beans (enough for two people)
1 small shallot
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
Glug of white wine vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil
Small bunch of flat leaf parsley
Salt and pepper

Pop a pan of salted water on to boil.

Wash and cut the tops of the green beans.  Once the water is boiling, drop the beans in and cook for about 5 minutes.  Drain them and set aside.

To make the marinade, finely slice the shallot and pop it in a bowl.  Add the Dijon mustard and a glug of white wine vinegar and give it a good mix. 

Add the warm beans to the marinade and mix well.

Chop up the parsley and add it to the bowl along with a good drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.  Give it another good mix and season with salt and pepper.

This salad is best served after the beans have had a chance to marinate in the shallot, mustard and vinegar mixture, so make this ahead of time – 15-20 minutes is great.
