Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add green beans and cook uncovered until nearly tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well, and set aside in a large bowl.
Smash garlic, olive oil, mint and salt using mortar and pestle.
Pour vinegar and half of olive oil mixture over the green beans and toss well.
Transfer the beans to a resealable freezer bag. Pour remaining olive oil mixture into bag, squeeze out all of the air; seal and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
Remove green beans from fridge and transfer onto a plate; top with fresh mint and serve.
