For the vinaigrette:

1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot

1 1/2 teaspoons dijon mustard

1 1/2 teaspoons honey

3 tablespoons champagne vinegar

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

For the salad:

1 zucchini, cut into 2-inch segments

1 yellow squash, cut into 2-inch segments

4 baby golden beets, peeled

3 large white mushrooms

1/3 cup chopped fresh chives, chervil and/or tarragon

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Make the vinaigrette: Stir together the shallot, mustard, honey, vinegar, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl. Whisk in the olive oil.
  2. Thinly slice the zucchini and squash lengthwise (with a mandoline, if you have one, or a vegetable peeler), then thinly slice the beets and mushrooms. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and toss. Sprinkle with the chives, chervil and tarragon. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
