Wonderful flavor! I did have to adjust this recipe since I was using a 16 ounce bag frozen haricots verts. I steamed those, and used just about half the amounts of the other ingredients. I especially like the flavor of the goat cheese with the flavor of the vinaigrette. Not too sweet, but just a hint of it with the dried cranberries. Very good! Thanks for posting.
