Bear with me on these, this is one of those recipes that I just throw together and don't really know the exact amount of ingredients I use. So I took a gander here, the best I can tell you is keep tasting and add more of this or that until you get the taste you like. Once you do I promise these will be a BIG hit, they are DELICIOUS! I have made them both cold and warm--I prefer them cold. Enjoy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain green beans and cool to room temperature.
  2. Add all ingredients and mix together thoroughly.
  3. Put in refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
  4. Don't saturate the green beans in liquid, add just enough to moisten and for flavor.

These were wonderful!! Had a pile of green beans that I bought on sale, and had no idea what to do with them...until I found this recipe!! I must admit, I did go with the fresh garlic, but other than that I didn't change a thing. Wonderful!! Thank you!!! ~Manda

Five Stars for certain! These greenbeans were wonderful. They were very easy to prepare, and the beans were that lovely bright green color. I added fresh garlic, but the basalmic was the true flavor enhancer. A nice combination of ingredients. Thanks for posting a wonderful recipe, Dana. It will be used here in my house again.

These were excellent green beans, which I seved with our Christmas dinner. I added slivered almonds and it was outstanding. I also did not measure the ingredients, just winged it. Instead of olive oil, I used about 2 tablespoons of butter. Thanks for posting! Everyone at Xmas loved them!
