Wash fresh green beans, trim and cut into 1-inch pieces.
Put about 2 inches of water in a large pot, insert a rack or steamer basket into the pot and bring the water to a boil. Steam the green beans in the basket for about 3-4 minutes. Remove the basket and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar and lemon juice together. Add the shallots and slowly whisk in the olive oil and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Personal Notes:
This is one of my hubby's favourite ways to eat green beans. Before we were married he had most often eaten only canned beans and didn't care for them too much. Whenever I can grow or purchase fresh tarragon and fresh beans I fix this dish. Yum!
