ISO green bean recipes (cold)

Anyone have a cold green bean salad or dish recipe? Bought a huge bag of them & I'm hoping to come up with something cold for lunches.

This is delicious - I've made it many times. I use creamy Dijon mustard, a little less oil and salt, and omit the sugar):

Another lovely post and topic ... Firstly, there are many types of green beans, from the Spanish extra long, wide and enormous variety to the French harti verts, tiny slim green beans called string beans ... I normally sauté in olive oil with a bit of minced garlic and a sprinkle of sea salt ... I do nothing more ...

They are very versatile ... however, I prefer the French green beans to the Spanish, and their availability shall be forthcoming ... I like them in crudities with a variety of dipping sauces, a Dijon, an Ali Oli, a Romesco which is a Catalan smoked paprika, hazelnut, day old baguette and tomato coulis.

When is season they are sweet as sugar ...

Have nice day.
Margi.

Green bean and potato salad with vinegar, olive oil, minced onion and or garlic. Use liquid from cooking green beans to cut the acidity of the vinegar. Can be eaten hot or at room temperature.

Lightly blanched green beans dressed with EVOO, freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice, toasted sesame seeds, and finely chopped sweet and hot red peppers, and some lemon/lime zest on top.
