I hope this very healthy and rustic green bean salad with garlic cream will delight you. This dish is a summer salad when we had fresh green beans and garlic in the garden, but if you don’t have it, you will do it with frozen green beans.

Green bean salads are quite widespread all over the world and in different forms, along with tomatoes, cheese, onions but also in simpler versions, as is this recipe.

Ingredients

Green Bean Salad With Garlic Cream-Green Bean and Garlic Cloves

For this recipe, I will use 400g of fresh green beans, enough for two generous servings, and about 5 garlic cloves from which we will make a cream.

Fresh green beans can be replaced with frozen beans or even with canned, but in my opinion, the tastiest is the fresh one. You can also use any type of green or yellow beans, the only condition is to be in the young stage.

Preparing the Ingredients

As you can see, the fresh green beans must be cleaned, that is, we break the thin ends, those cracks, and because they are very long, we break them into 3-4 pieces, so that we can eat them more easily. We also peel the garlic cloves.
