A note about Garlico, sold by Al Amir Fresh Foods; it can be found at Fred Meyer in the deli section. Sub Recipe If you do not have Garlico, then whisk together five minced cloves of garlic, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, pinch of salt and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Mix well.
- In a serving bowl add Garlico, squeeze two fresh lemons, salt and olive oil to make a dressing.
- Steam green beans until al dente (firm to bite, not soft and mushy), then sit until room temperature.
- Toss green beans in large bowl with dressing.
- When it’s time to serve, add dry mint or fresh mint for added flavor.
Recipe is best if made the night before so green beans absorb the juice.
