One of my favorite ways to enjoy green beans–in a chilled green bean salad recipe! The delicious flavors of these balsamic green beans made with black olives, scallions and eggs complement any meal or holiday potluck.

Ingredients

  • 24 oz 6 cups string beans beans, ends trimmed
  • 2.25 ounce can sliced black olives (drained (check labels for Whole30))
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 medium scallions (chopped)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper (to taste)
  • 5 hard boiled eggs (peeled and sliced)

Instructions

  • Place green beans in a large pot and cover with water, about 6 cups. Bring to a boil, then cover and cook until tender crisp, about 6 minutes (don’t overcook or they will get mushy).
  • Drain and rinse under cold water when done to prevent them from overcooking, drain.
  • In a large bowl, combine balsamic, oil, salt and pepper. Toss in the green beans, scallions and olives.
  • Mix well and top with sliced eggs. Refrigerate and serve chilled or room temperature.
