Marinated Green Beans

Serves 4 as Salad.

This really simple salad is perfect for taking along to a picnic or potluck. The garlic and onion give it a big punch of flavor, and the green beans are tender crisp and really refreshing.

  • 3/4 lb green beans
  • 1/4 c red onion, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1/2 T olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 T lemon juice

Cook the beans in a large pot of boiling water, uncovered, for about 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain beans. Transfer to a bowl and toss with the onion, garlic, olive oil and salt. Marinate at room temperature for 1 hbour, tossing mixture occasionally. Refrigerate if you want to marinate the mixture longer. Just before serving, add lemon juice and toss to coat beans.
