This is a simple and healthy side to add to any dinner table. It's also a wonderful and healthier alternative to the famous Thanksgiving green bean casserole.



  • 1 lb assorted beans yellow, green, and purple wax
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup tarragon vinaigrette

Tarragon Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup fresh terragon leaves
  • 1/4 cup Salute Santé! Grapeseed Oil.
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 dashes raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper



  • Blanch or steam the beans until done, but crisp (approximately 7-10 minutes).
  • Drain and immerse beans in ice cold water to hold colors.
  • When cool, drain the water.
  • Toss the beans with raisins, hazelnuts and Tarragon Vinaigrette.

Tarragon Vinaigrette

  • Whisk together the Dijon mustard, vinegar, salt, pepper and sugar.
  • Slowly add the Salute Santé! Grapeseed Oil to the mixture while whisking to emulsify, until thick.
  • Add chopped tarragon leaves.


Certainly just as good to use all green beans for this recipe.
