Quick pickled green beans
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 6
This summery side dish makes a delicious accompaniment to roast chicken
- STEP 1
Cook the beans in boiling, salted water until they’ve lost their ‘squeakiness’ but still have a bit of bite. Drain, plunge into cold water to cool, then drain again. Tip them into a kitchen roll-lined bowl and cover with a sheet of kitchen roll until ready to serve.
- STEP 2
Mix together the sliced shallots, olive oil, vinegar, sugar and mustard seeds with some seasoning, then set aside.
- STEP 3
To serve, toss the dressing through the beans in a serving bowl.
