Ingredients

    1 ½ cups water
    2 cups stemmed green beans (about ½ pound)
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
    2 large garlic cloves, pressed
    ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
    ⅓ cup cider vinegar
    ½ teaspoon sugar or honey
    1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Directions

Makes 4 4oz Servings

Bring the water to a boil in a small pot. Cook the beans, covered, for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the beans when they are still bright green and just tender, and place them in a bowl. Stir the dill into the warm beans.

Combine the garlic, red pepper flakes, vinegar, and sugar or honey in a saucepan and quickly bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 minutes. Pour the dressing over the green beans and mix well. Add the oil if you like. Serve immediately, or chill for about 20 minutes and serve later.
