Serves 8

If Clementines are unavailable, substitute freshly squeezed juice from 2 navel oranges and a little zest from one of the oranges.

Ingredients:

1 small shallot, chopped

1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard

¼ teaspoon sea salt

Zest and juice of 3 Clementines

1½ pounds green beans, trimmed

½ cup pecans, toasted and chopped

Directions:

In a blender, combine shallot, mustard, salt and Clementine juice and blend until smooth. Set aside.

Steam beans on a steamer rack set over simmering water until bright green and barely tender, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and drizzle with citrus dressing.

Sprinkle with pecans and Clementine zest to taste and serve.
