1 shallot, finely chopped
1/4 cup (60ml) Champagne or sparkling white wine
1/4 cup (60ml) apple cider vinegar
For the dressing, combine all ingredients in a bowl. Set aside until needed. Blanch the beans in a large pan of boiling salted water for 3 minutes or until tender. Drain and place in a bowl of iced water until cool, then drain again and pat dry with paper towel. Thinly slice beans lengthways. To serve, place beans on a platter, top with fig, mint leaves and feta. Drizzle with dressing and scatter over sunflower seeds.
