     Green Beans with Pickled Onions from the Betty Crocker site!


You Need:

cups fresh green beans, strings removed
cup cider vinegar
tablespoon sugar
teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper
medium red onion, very thinly sliced
teaspoons olive or vegetable oil

To Make:

  • 1In 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.
  • 2Meanwhile, 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.
  • 3In medium serving bowl, place beans; top with onion. Drizzle with reserved vinegar mixture and the oil; toss to coat.


Quick-pickling an onion tames its heat and gives it a beautiful pink color. A pickled onion's 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.

Sounds good to me.  Could we add this recipe to the "learning to love green beans" post as well please?  I  figure if I have enough recipes there, everyone can find one that will work for them and their family :)

This is actually one of my favorite ways to eat green beans.
