    Mel T's Note:

    This salad is soooo easy but extremely delicious! It is great hot, cold, or in between. If I didn't have a huge sweet tooth, I could very happily live on just this salad and crusty bread forever!

    1. 1
      Boil or steam green beans until tender-crisp (hint: use a bit of salt in the water to make the beans their greenest).
    2. 2

    3. 3
    4. 4
      Once they're cooked, drain the beans and toss them in the olive oil& garlic mixture.
    5. 5
      Add salt and pepper to taste.

      If you can, let the salad sit for 30 minutes (or more) to let the flavours combine.
    7. 7
      Serve at desired temperature.
    8. 8
      Note: this salad is also very tasty with some finely chopped onion (preferably sweet) added with the garlic.

      I love this recipe! One of my favorite ways to have green beans. I used fresh green beans and blanched them in hot boiling water with some kosher salt for 10 minutes, than drained the water off. I used a saucepan and added minced garlic and the olive oil and lightly browned the garlic , than added the green beans, salt and black pepper and tossed lightly and removed from the pan to a platter and added some chopped red onion. This is delicious warm or cold. I could eat this everyday just by its self. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      This is a nice quick & simple side dish. I steamed the beans, which come in a 453g bag. I used 1/4C oil as we don't like veggies swimming in sauce. We did think this had too much of a garlic taste (maybe I should use smaller cloves).
