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.
24oz6 cups string beans beans, ends trimmed
2.25ouncecan sliced black olives(drained (check labels for Whole30))
3tablespoonsextra virgin olive oil
fresh black pepper(to taste)
5hard boiled eggs(peeled and sliced)
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.
