  • Coarse salt
  • 1 pound green beans
  • 1/4 cup black-olive tapenade
  • 1 clove garlic, minced, or more to taste
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Plunge beans into boiling water, and cook until bright green and tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain, and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking. Trim the ends off the beans, and cut in half lengthwise.

  2. Transfer beans to a serving bowl, and toss well with tapenade, garlic, parsley, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
