"This is a side dish of fresh green beans tossed with orange-infused olive oil. It's my favorite way to make green beans. I normally serve it with Italian food, it's tasty and refreshing!" — SHACKL

fresh green beans, trimmed and halved
4 1/2 teaspoons
extra-virgin olive oil
orange zest strips
kosher salt to taste
grated orange zest
sorry I should have stated I don't use all the olive oil at one recipe. I make the orange olive oil to use again. It is just easier to infuse the olive oil when there it a bit more oil than about one table spoon. So after you infuse the olive oil I would only pour about 1 table spoon on top. Save the rest for another time.
A nice change to ordinary steamed green beans. Easy to make. Next time I'd use more orange zest and a little less oil.
I use Blood Orange olive oil and orange zest for garnish. Best beans ever everyone loves them and wants the recipe
Never though orange could go well with green beans before
I was surprised how flavorful and good-looking this dish was. I used about 3 1/2 teaspoons olive oil, and this seemed to be just right.
I used frozen haricot vert.. this was quite tasty. I also added cracked pepper
I tried this first with asparagus, and later with green beans as I had a lot of oil left over. The oil had a subtle orange smell, but the flavor really didn't come through on the veggies. You definitely need the orange zest to get the orange flavor. And even then it was just a little too orange-y without any balancing flavor. Not bad, but I won't make it often.
Very nice flavour. Everyone like this.
