  • 3 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 0 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/4 tsp Black Pepper

  1. To make the dressing: in a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Set aside
  2. Insert a steamer basket in a large pot with water not quite touching the basket. Add beans and steam until tender-crisp, 2-3 minutes. Drain beans and add to dressing; toss to combine.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add sliced mushrooms and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Sauté until mushrooms are tender and liquid has evaporated, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes. Stir in minced garlic. Add mushrooms to the bowl of beans and toss well to coat with dressing. Add the arugula and radicchio; gently toss to combine.
  4. Arrange salad on 8 serving plates and sprinkle each with chopped olives.
