Louisiana Style Fresh Green Bean Recipe
2 pounds fresh green beans, washed, topped and tailed
4 tablespoons olive oil or lemon infused olive oil
4 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons Creole mustard or Green Olive & Lemon Mustard
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 green onion tops, minced
2 teaspoons red-pepper flakes (optional)
1/2 teaspoons sea salt
In a large bowl or basin full of water, add several cups of ice cubes. Bring a large pot of water to a brisk boil. Add the green beans and cook until just tender. Do not cover the pot and do not overcook. Immediately drain the beans and plunge into the bowl of ice and water to immediately stop the cooking process. Drain beans again.
In a glass or other non-reactive bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients until well blended. If you prefer to use a food processor, pulse until all ingredients are well blended. Add the cooled green beans, stirring to coat thoroughly. Refrigerate 3 – 4 hours before serving.
If you can't find young green beans, you can use frozen. Purchase whole, young or baby green beans. Don't get the cut ones. Frozen green beans are already blanched so all you have to do is thaw them and drain well.
