    • 120ml balsamic vinegar
    • 80ml olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic, chopped
    • 1 teaspoon sugar

    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
