Here’s another tasty recipe from my last trip to Italy! More on my trip here. These green beans are fresh, tasty, and quick! They were part of a antipasti platter I had at the cutest little restaurant! This salad is awesome as is, but I think it could be even better with the addition of toasted almonds or olives!
Italian Green Beans
1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
3 cloves garlic
a pinch of salt
toasted almonds or olives
Steam the green beans in a large pot until they are fork tender. Immediately remove and drop in an ice bath. Remove and place on a towel. In a large mixing bowl, combine the garlic and a pinch of salt. Add the green beans and a couple tablespoons of olive oil and toss. Add in the tomatoes and toss gently. Serve cold or room temperature.
