In keeping with my tradition of quick and easy recipes, this is another qualifier. I can quite comfortably polish off all the beans by myself in one sitting. It does help that Pete says they are squeaky and steers clear of them. 🙂 If you want to get fancy, you could throw a few toasted flaked almonds over the top.
Green Bean Vinaigrette
350g fresh green beans
45ml olive oil
30ml red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove crushed
¼ tsp brown sugar
Ground salt and pepper to taste
- Blanch or steam the beans until tender.
- Mix all of the other ingredients and pour over the beans while they are still hot.
- Allow to marinate for an hour or more spooning the vinaigrette over the beans a couple of times.

so simple and yet so rich and delicious and perfect for green beans!
Made them AGAIN last night Belle. I just can’t get enough of them. Have a wonderful day. 🙂 xo
I bet your vinaigrette would make me eat more green beans. Love the idea of sprinkling some toasted almonds on top too. Would be a delightful combination of texture and flavor. Mmmm! 🙂
Hope you are having a beautiful week so far Miss Mandy. Hugs to you.
Right, that’s it. I will definitely be making these for you when you visit. Hmm, hang on, that sounds like a punishment. Haa haa. Have an awesome weekend ahead sweet Anna. 🙂 xoxoxo
A quick and lovely dish, Mandy.
Thanks very much Angie. Have a wonderful day. 🙂 xo

What a lovely way to cook beans. These must have so much flavour xx
Friends came around last night and I made these again. They loved them. Have a super day Charlie. 🙂 xo
I don’t think you can ever have too many green beans! Love this recipe, xo
Exactly my sentiments Lizzy. Have a wonderful day. 🙂 xo
I too have been a green bean fan since I was a small child because we had them straight from the garden when they were young and tender. Your side dish would be welcome on my table anytime!
Nothing quite eating a bean fresh from the garden Judy. What a treat! Have a super day. 🙂 xo
I am such a HUGE green bean lover, and this looks superb. Very nice, simple recipe
Thanks Kay. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Those do look good Mandy & I never would have thought to put a little brown sugar on them. I’m chuckling because I always think of doing something a little fancy (you know those presentation skills I’m lacking) but then I just say – eh…dig in & eat!
Dig in and eat is the best way to go Diane. The sugar just breaks the sharpness of the vinegar making these even more moreish. 😀 Have a wonderful day. 🙂 xo
Drooling and NOT feeling guilty in MN. xxxx
The best kind of drooling is the guilt free kind. Love, love, love to you my dear and sweet Kim. 🙂 xoxoxo
Saving recipe for when my green beans are ready to harvest, Of course I need to plant them first am anxiously waiting for all the snow in my garden to melt and the soil to warm up.
Norma, I cannot imagine what it must be like living with snow – I have never even seen snow. Hope you get to planting soon. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
We love beans done like this and absoultely agree with your tip about dressing them while they’re hot – deeeelish!
Amazing what a difference dressing them hot does – they just absorb the flavour better. Have a beautiful day Tanya. 🙂 xo
Oh yeah! This is a perfect side for some juicy steak. You just activated our craving! Thanks for sharing!!
