Marinated Green Beans


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 3/4 pound fresh green beans
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped fine
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice


Snap beans and break into 2″ pieces, or leave whole if very
small. Fill a medium sized pot 3/4 full with water and
bring to a boil. Add green beans and cook for 3 minutes, or
until tender-crisp. Drain. Mix still warm beans with
onion, garlic, salt and olive oil. Leave mixture at room
temperature for an hour, in order to let flavors mingle.
Immediately before serving, add lemon juice (otherwise the
beans turn yellow). Best served the same day.

I have never run into someone who didn’t love these green
beans! They are packed with the flavors of garlic, onion
and lemon juice. They are really wonderful with tiny new
beans, but any fresh will do. Summer in a bowl!
