  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard—coarse ground or Dijon
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

  • A large pinch of salt
  • A few grinds of freshly cracked pepper
  1. Steam green beans with a little water in a covered glass bowl in the microwave until crisp tender, about 2 to 4 minutes.
