"There are two ways you can do this recipe. You can boil your beans, dress them and serve immediately. I prefer it dressed and left to marinate in the fridge overnight, which gives you something closer to a pickled bean."

Really heavy on the garlic!

I had never hear of these beans before, and did not know what to do with them. Glad to have found this recipe! It was wonderful!!

It is a good quick easy recipe. However, it is a little heavy on garlic and olive oil.
