A nice side dish. You can use leftover corn, and substitute green beans if you cannot find haricot verts. ZWT Mid-West region (corn).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 34 lb French haricots vert, trimmed and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 3 cups corn (from about 6 ears)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest, fresh, finely grated
  • 12 teaspoon fresh lime juice (to taste)


  1. Cook shallot in butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add beans, corn, and salt and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until vegetables are tender, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lime zest and lime juice.

I very much enjoyed this. I used frozen corn and 1 tablespoon of bottled lime juice as I did not have a lime. Very easy and delicious!
