Simple Green Bean Salad

Simple Green Bean Salad created by Marsha D.

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!

ingredients

directions

  • Boil or steam green beans until tender-crisp (hint: use a bit of salt in the water to make the beans their greenest).
  • Meanwhile, add garlic and oil to medium-sized serving bowl.
  • Mix.
  • Once they're cooked, drain the beans and toss them in the olive oil& garlic mixture.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • If you can, let the salad sit for 30 minutes (or more) to let the flavours combine.
  • Serve at desired temperature.
  • Note: this salad is also very tasty with some finely chopped onion (preferably sweet) added with the garlic.
  • You can also use a mix of greeen and yellow beans for additional colour.

    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).
