"This is a nice change of pace from the typical bland way of serving green beans. I like to chill before serving, but they can also be served at room temperature. (Note: Prep time doesn't include letting the onion sit in the dressing or chilling in the fridge.)"
1 lb green beans
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
- Combine all ingredients except the green beans to make a dressing. Let the onion marinate in the dressing for at least one hour (the longer, the better).
- Snap the ends from the green beans. If they're large, break them further so they're about the size of your index finger. Cook in boiling weater until tender, then drain.
- Mix with the dressing, being sure to coat the green beans well. Let cool and serve, or better yet, chill in the refrigerator before serving.
