Burning Question: Are Haricots Verts Just Green Beans?

Yes and no. While an "haricot vert" literally translates to "green bean," these French green beans (left) are typically longer and thinner than their American counterparts (right). Haricots verts are more tender than the average green bean, and are often used in salads and pickling recipes, where they are prized for their crispness. While both green beans belong to the same family, Fabaceae, they are different varietals. However, the two varieties can, for most practical purposes, be used interchangeably.
