  • Once completely chilled, drain and dry beans.

  • Trim and slice beans on the diagonal.

  • Add sliced beans to a bowl and mix with remaining ingredients, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Let beans marinate for at least 4 hours for better flavor. Can be made a day ahead and will have best flavor after marinating in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours.

Makes 6-8 servings, but you can stretch further by adding additional beans. No need to make more marinade if adding additional beans.
