For the Haricot Verts
Bring a pot of salted water to boil.
Blanche string beans for 3 minutes. Strain and immediately place string beans into ice water. This will help them retain their bright green color and crispness. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Toss butternut squash with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the cubes. They should be caramelized. Set aside.
For the Mango Shallot Vinaigrette
In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, salt, pepper, and shallot. Drizzle in the olive oil and continue to whisk.
Season with additional salt and pepper if necessary. Add mango pieces.
Allow flavors to meld for at least 30 minutes before serving.
