Corn, green bean and tomato salad


1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. minced shallots
Salt and pepper, to taste

1 lb. green beans

2 cups halved heirloom cherry tomatoes
1 cup chiffonade-cut basil
2 tbsp. chopped almonds
2 tbsp. grated Cowgirl Creamery Wagon Wheel cheese, or asiago or fontina

During the warm-weather months in the Central Valley, this refreshing salad hits the spot with the snap of green beans, the pop of roasted corn and the burst of cherry tomatoes. It's a seasonal favorite at Moo Creamery and also a perfect accompaniment to a backyard barbecue or picnic in the park.
