This is a simple recipe I put together to use up the abundant supply of green beans over the summer. My father-in-law liked it so much that he bought me more beans every chance he got. :D

This side dish is very good served piping hot or at room temperature.

It also doubles well, so go ahead and make more!

Step-by-Step

  1. Blanch the green beans (fresh or frozen)by dropping them into rapidly boiling, salted water. Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from boiling water and plunge immediately into the ice water. Let it cool for an additional 3 minutes. Remove the beans from the ice water and dry on a clean kitchen towel.
