i love green beans

Green beans are one of my favourite vegetables.  It’s a toss up between, courgettes, green beans and asparagus…..I love to do them like this (aprox 350gm) – so simple and so delicious.

Blanch the beans for a few minutes in boiling water (3 max).  Strain and then pour over a good gulp of olive oil, add the zest of a whole lemon, juice of half a lemon, a good sprinkle of Maldon salt and some freshly ground black pepper.

This is delicious as is, as a side dish with so many things. Eat it warm or cold.

Add a finely chopped red onion and toss around a bit.  The red from the onion turns the dressing a lovely pink colour.
