Anna Sultana's Green Bean Salad with Dressing, Maltese Style


A little while ago I wrote about how Pop kept us fed while he was out of work.
We really depended on his garden.
Especially the green beans he grew.
And grew.

Here's one of Ma's green bean recipes.
Of course it has the Maltese touch.
Garlic.
Good for what ails you.


                        Green Bean Salad

Wash and remove tips of
1 pound fresh green beans
Cook in salted water 15 minutes.
Drain.
Put beans in bowl.

Add
1/4 Cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram

Toss well.  Check seasoning.  
Serve warm or chilled.

What's nice about this recipe is you can make extra.
Store the extra beans in the fridge for when you're going to be busy.
It improves while storing.
Well, as much as green beans can improve.

Don't expect miracles.
