Serves: 4
Total Calories: 341


1 pound green beans
1 yellow sweet pepper, seeded and julienned
1 medium jicama (about 1/2 pound), peeled and julienned
15 cherry tomatoes, halved

1 teaspoon Dijon style mustard
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh chives
2/3 cup olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


1. To make the salad. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Immerse the green beans and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, depending on their size. The beans should be slightly crisp. Drain and plunge immediately into ice water to stop the cooking. When cool, drain well and place in a medium bowl.

2. Add the peppers, jicama, and tomatoes to the green beans. Toss gently to blend.

3. To make the dressing, in a small bowl, combine the mustard, lemon juice, and chives. Whisk to combine, then slowly add the olive oil, whisking until totally emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Drizzle the dressing over the vegetables and toss thoroughly. Taste for seasoning. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover, and refrigerate until well chilled, at least one hour.

TO MAKE AHEAD: Prepare up to 8 hours in advance and refrigerate until serving.
