Ingredients [Serves 4]

2 lbs. green and/or yellow string beans
1 pint of grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, fresh juiced
2 shallots, minced
2 tbsp. fresh tarragon, chopped
Sea salt to taste (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Sea Salt)


In a large pot of boiling water, cook the beans just until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain the beans and spread them on a baking sheet to cool. Pat dry.

In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, shallots, and tarragon, and season with sea salt and black pepper.

Place the beans and tomatoes in a large bowl, add the dressing, and toss well.
