Green Beans with Olives

Source: Everyday Food, March 2012


  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 1 jar (9 ounces) pimiento-stuffed olives, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 anchovy fillets
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar


  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook green beans until crisp-tender and bright green, about 6 minutes. Drain and return to pot.

  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse olives, parsley, anchovies, oil, and vinegar until olives are finely chopped. Add to beans and stir to combine. Season with pepper. Serve at room temperature.

    While this recipe has beautiful color and is fabulously easy to make, it is suprisingly low on flavor. If I make this again I'll definitely use more red wine vinegar and add some red onion.
