This is an easy and delicious salad for summertime. Especially when the green beans are in their peak season. This recipe can be made using my Herbal Tarragon Vinegar #2882.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a saucepan over high heat in 1 inch of water, heat green beans to boiling.
  2. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 5-10 minutes or until green beans are tender crisp; drain.
  3. In a bowl combine the mayonnaise, tarragon vinegar, salt, mustard and pepper; mix well.
  4. I like to put the green beans and sliced onions in a large zip-lock bag (less clean up) along with the tarragon dressing mixture, fumbling for dressing to coat green beans.
  5. If you don't have a large zip-lock bag you can place the green beans and sliced onions in a large dish and toss to coat with the tarragon dressing.
  6. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours hours for flavors to blend before serving.
  7. Garnish with freshly topped tarragon.
  8. Serve and Enjoy!

This was good - I used the prepared Tarragon vinegar and fresh tarragon. I had some matchstick carrots from another recipe attempt which I had made leftover - so I added them - just for color. I had some while still warm - and actually preferred them that way. A nice side dish to chicken or beef meal. In a zip lock bag for transport - this would be perfect for a picnic or pot luck.

Made this with 1 pound of beans.I used white vinegar and parsley. Couldn`t get any tarragon. Nice a crisp and fresh!
