Sweet & Sour Green Beans

From EatingWell:  November/December 2012

This slightly sweet, slightly sour green bean recipe takes just a few minutes to make and is great served at room temperature. Make it ahead and let the green beans bathe in the dressing, soaking up flavor.

12 servings, 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Fit a large pot with a steamer basket, add 1 to 2 inches water and bring to a boil. Add green beans, cover and steam until tender-crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in ice cube until it dissolves. Whisk in shallots, oil and salt.
  3. Transfer the green beans to a large bowl, pour the dressing over them and toss to coat.
