Give Your Green Beans Tang With A Garlicky Vinaigrette
No matter how you prepare them, green beans taste infinitely better with a good vinaigrette that has plenty of garlic. You can make your own with just a few ingredients.
Before building a dressing, you'll need to make oven-roasted garlic, as this is what ties everything together. Start by cutting off ¼ of the garlic head.
Remove the skin and drizzle it with olive oil and salt. Wrapped in aluminum foil, the garlic should roast in the oven for 45 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once cool, squeeze the garlic into a food processor or mini blender and combine it with the rest of the vinaigrette ingredients. Coat your cooked green beans in the vinaigrette.
Be sure to add Dijon mustard to your vinaigrette, whose piquant flavor delivers a spicy kick. Pick the other ingredients based on what the green beans are being paired with.
