    About this recipe: I got this bean salad recipe from a friend from Cuba, in Spanish it is called habichuelas al Escabeche. boiled beans are basted with a vinaigrette while still warm and are left for an hour to marinate at room temperature.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1kg green beans, trimmed
    • 120ml balsamic vinegar
    • 80ml olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic, chopped
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 small onion, sliced into thin rings
    • Freshly ground black pepper

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Extra time:1hr marinating  ›  Ready in:1hr13min 

    1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil over a medium heat, add the beans and boil without lid until they are slightly soft but still slightly crunchy, about 7-10 minutes. Check often so that the beans don't get overcooked.
    2. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl.
    3. Drain beans and toss with the vinaigrette while still warm. Marinate at room temperature for at least 1 hour. Serve cold or at room temperature.

    Yummy! We substituted half of the balsamic for malt because we ran out - not advisable! - 04 Oct 2015
