Climbing beans are a great crop for the backyard gardener especially when you don’t have much space. I planted some this year close to the fence and they grew so nicely and fast. It felt great picking them right from our backyard, making this easy and delicious salad (a family favourite during summer time) and literally enjoying the fruits of our labour.
Time: 30 min, Prep: 15 min. Cook: 15 min.
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 kg green beans
- 4-6 garlic cloves
- 3 Tbsp mayonnaise (if you want to make mayo at home check out my Boeuf Salad post for the recipe)
- 1 Tbsp salt
Wash the green beans and trim the ends.
Place beans in a pot with water & salt and bring to a boil. Cook them for approximately 10 minutes or until they reach the desired doneness.
Once cooked, discard the water and cut beans into desired lengths. Set aside to cool.
Mince garlic and add over beans together with the mayonnaise.
Toss to combine, serve and enjoy!
