Fasolakia me skordo / Green beans with garlic

The Greeks are experts at making really tasty food, using just a few ingredients. This salad is a great example of this capability. If the produce is perfect, let it shine! Green beans are used extensively in Greece, and this salad can be eaten hot or cold. The cold variant tastes delicious on hot summer days. I prefer fresh green beans, but frozen green beans often taste surprisingly good too. Garlic can be omitted if you will; it’s actually more common to eat green beans without garlic. Whatever you do, it is almost incredible that so few ingredients can create such a good salad!

  • ½ kg green beans, boiled
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bunch dill, chopped

Heat the oil, add the garlic and let it get a tiny amount of colour. Add salt and lemon to the oil and pour over the beans. Mix well with dill.
