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.
