  • ½ tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 350 g green beans
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1- 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • kosher salt, to taste

Recipe Instructions

  • Cook the green beans to desired doneness (cook them just until tender - don't undercook or overcook)
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustards, horseradish, sour cream and salt.
  • Serve the sauce at room temperature with the green beans.

Cooks Notes & Variations

Cook fresh green beans as little as possible using the smallest amount of water as possible. The fewer beans in the pan, the quicker they cook and the better they taste.
The beans will continue to cook after you remove them from the heat source. Either take them out just before they are cooked the way you like or plunge them in ice water immediately to stop the cooking process.
