Marinated Green Beans

Healthy can be yummy!  Lyn served these at a party as an appetizer.  She was gracious enough to share her recipe about a year ago and it has been a great addition to several menus.  I love the color, the crunch, and the simplicity.    Green beans a finger food?  Why not.  

Using a wire wisk, mix the 4 ingredients well.

1/2 cup sugar  (you can use sweetener)
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 tsp pepper flakes (I add a little extra)
1 clove garlic – chopped (I use 1 large or 2 if they are small)

Mix above early in the day and refrigerate.

Cook 1 lb. green beans for 3 minutes in boiling water. Remove and plunge in ice
water. Refrigerate beans.

About an hour before serving, pour marinade over green beans and allow to reach
room temperature. Serve. It makes a great appetizer or a side dish.
