Ingredients

  1. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  2. Check 2pounds green beans, trimmed
  3. Check 6 slices bacon
  4. Check 2 shallots, sliced
  5. Check 2tablespoons cider vinegar
  6. Check 2tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  7. Check 2tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon salt. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool; transfer to a serving bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then break into pieces.
  3. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings from the skillet and return to medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the vinegar, mustard, oil, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add to the green beans, along with the bacon, and toss to combine.
