We received about four pounds of green beans in our CSA box. Thanks to this recipe one quarter of my current green bean situation has been resolved. From foodrepublic.com

Ingredients

1 lb
green beans, trimmed
2 Tbsp
safflower oil (or most any oil that can tolerate high heat)
1 Tbsp
red wine vinegar (white balsamic, apple cider vinegar will work as well)
1 stick
extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp
harissa, to taste (homemade is best!)
pinch
salt

Step-By-Step

1Steam the green beans briefly-about 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
2Meanwhile, preheat a grill or large grill pan to high.
3Place the steamed green beans in a large prep bowl and toss with the vegetable oil. Using tongs, arrange the beans in a [single layer] on the grill and cook until lightly charred, about 3-5 minutes.
4In a small, non-reactive prep bowl whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, harissa (to taste) and salt. Note: I added 2 teaspoons of harissa.
5Arrange the grilled green beans on a serving platter.
6Pour the vinaigrette over the green beans. Serve warm or at room temperature. A garnish of fresh parsley (or cilantro) and/or crispy shallots would not be out of place.
