2 pounds green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces (I halved them)

1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar (I omitted this)
1 teaspoon coarse-grain mustard (I used creamy Dijon)
3/4 teaspoon salt (I used a few pinches, to taste)
1/2 cup olive oil (I used about 6 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil)
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
Freshly ground pepper, to taste


In a large saucepan of boiling water, cook the beans until just crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. (I steamed them). Drain and set aside.

In jar with a tight fitting lid, shake together all remaining ingredients. (In a medium mixing bowl, I whisked together all the ingredients, except the oil, then gradually whisked in the oil).

Toss beans with dressing shortly before serving. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.

Serves 6-8.
