  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed or avocado oil
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 small sprig fresh rosemary
  • 2 cups sliced shallots (about 2 large), separated into rings
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt plus ½ teaspoon, divided
  • 1½ pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat grapeseed (or avocado) oil, olive oil, garlic and rosemary in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook, swirling occasionally, until the garlic is sizzling but not browned, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the garlic to a small bowl, leaving the oil in the pan. Discard the rosemary.
  2. Add shallots to the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Using tongs, transfer the shallots to a paper-towel-lined plate, leaving as much of the oil in the pan as possible. Season the shallots with ⅛ teaspoon salt.
  3. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add green beans, cover and steam until tender-crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Transfer the oil from the pan to a mini food processor. Add the garlic, vinegar, lemon zest, lemon juice, mustard, pepper and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Pulse until smooth.
  5. Toss the green beans with the dressing. Serve topped with the shallots.
