This is a recipe I saved from Ediets. I have found that I prefer a little sea salt, fresh ground pepper and splenda mixed with the sauce, but the original recipe did not call for it. I hope you enjoy!
- Rinse and snap beans.
- Mince garlic.
- Mix garlic, vinegar and olive oil and set aside.
- Steam beans until tender but firm, approximately 10-15 minutues.
- Toss with balsamic vinegar dressing.
- Can be refrigerated and served cold.
I made this as is (except for scaling back on the oil to about 1/2 tsp) with frozen beans. I thought it was great! It gave a nice tangy flavour the the beans, while being fairly subtle. I do think the additions of the salt, pepper and splenda would have been great too..I may try this next time! Thanks Bobtail!
I love green beans,used to eat them raw,when picking on my Uncle's farm.I put a little brown sugar,and water chesnuts in mine.Delicious with vinegar.Thanks,a keeper. Rose of Sharon
We did enjoy these beans, Bobtail! Had to scale back a little on the amounts, as it was just my Husband and I for dinner. I added a bit of salt and pepper as you suggested and might even try the sugar idea next time. :)
