Green Beans with Onion and Tomato Cooking Notes

 You can use fresh or frozen green beans. For the recipe pictured I drizzled olive oil on frozen green beans while stir-frying them.

Then create a puree of garlic, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper, and olive oil.

It is better to use a blender to emulsify the puree. Throw in the first 5 ingredients and then pour the olive oil in a stream while blending. But if you don’t have a blender, you can also use a lidded jar to shake the puree. Just shake it HARD. Pour it on top of the green beans.

Add the chopped tomato and onion, and then toss it all together like a salad. You can either serve it hot or cold. Try it either way!

Be Blessed.
