I hope this very healthy rustic salad will delight you. This green beans salad with garlic cream was a summer salad when we had fresh green beans and garlic in the garden.
Print Recipe



  • 400 g green beans frozen or fresh
  • 4 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 5 pieces garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp ground pepper freshly ground
  • 1 tsp vegetable mix for soup
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped


  • For starting, 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.
  • Boil 1.5 l of water in a pot, with a tablespoon of sea salt and a tablespoon of food seasoning. When the water boils, we put the green beans in it, which we boil for about 15 minutes.
  • Crush the garlic and put it in a small bowl. Add a little salt, fresh ground pepper and two tablespoons of sunflower oil, then stir continuously with a wooden spoon until we get a consistent paste. If necessary, you can add more oil. I added a little lemon juice, about a teaspoon, and a tablespoon of water to make it a little thinne.
  • If the green beans have boiled but are still crispy, put them in a strainer and cool them under a stream of cold water, to stop boiling. After they have drained, we put them in a bowl.
  • While the beans are still warm, mix them with two tablespoons of sunflower oil and then pour over the garlic cream and a tablespoon of chopped parsley. Mix lightly and season with a teaspoon of sea salt if needed, I added a teaspoon of a vegetable mix for soups and a teaspoon of freshly ground pepper.


Any kind of green beans, fresh or frozen, can be used.
Green beans should be warm when mixed with garlic and oil so that they can better absorb all flavors.
It can be consumed as a salad or as a side dish with meat.
