Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh green beans, strings removed
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 medium red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil

Directions

  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup water to boiling over high heat. Add green beans; cover and return to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer covered 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Drain; cool in colander under cold running water.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in shallow bowl, stir vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper until sugar is dissolved. Add onion; toss to coat. Let stand 10 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon vinegar mixture.
  • 3
    In medium serving bowl, place beans; top with onion. Drizzle with reserved vinegar mixture and the oil; toss to coat.

  • Quick-pickling the onion tames its heat and gives a beautiful pink color. The flavors go well with grilled salmon, lamb or pork chops.
  • You can cook the beans up to two days ahead, but for the brightest color, don't toss with the dressing until just before serving.
