Original recipe makes 5 to 6 side salad servings Change Servings


  1. Bring 2 quarts of water to boil. Add green beans and boil for 5 minutes or until beans are just tender. Plunge the beans in cold water to set their color, drain well.
  2. In a large bowl combine salt, mustard seed, dill weed, chiles, dill seed and garlic. Mix. Add cooled beans to the bowl and stir.
  3. In a small saucepan bring 2 cups water, vinegar, sugar and salt (to taste) to boil. Pour this mixture over the beans and spices. Mix well.
  4. Chill the beans in an airtight container at least overnight before eating. The beans are best if given a week to marinate refrigerated before eating.

Excellent! Tastes like pickled greenbeans- a delicious side for sandwiches. And, much better when left to marinate for a few days.

These are great! Been making them all summer long, and the grandkids just love them as well as the rest of the family. They all enjoy just snacking on them especially the grandkids. Thanks for the recipe Christine.

Delicious! Pickled green beans, essentially. I made this over a week ago and forgot about it. Found it today and was worried it wouldn't be okay. It is! Nice and vinegary--just how I like it. Thanks!

Delicious. I made the batch without red pepper flakes, and just sprinkled them over Husband's serving. Good stuff. Thanks, Christine!
