Serves 4

3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
1/3 cup cider vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 shallot, sliced
1 pound green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper; set aside.

2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes.

3. Add the green beans and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute.

4. Whisk the honey mixture again and pour it over the beans. Cook, tossing the beans occasionally so they cook evenly, for 3 minutes or until they are tender but still have some bite.

5. Sprinkle with parsley.
