2 pounds haricots verts, trimmed

1/2 cup olive oil

4 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced

Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

1/2 cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Prepare an ice bath of water and ice in a large bowl. Drop the green beans into the boiling water to blanch for 60 seconds. Immediately remove the beans and shock in the ice bath.
  2. In a large saute pan, over low heat, add the olive oil and the garlic. Fry the garlic chips until golden in color, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove garlic chips to paper towels to drain.
  3. Remove the green beans from ice bath and add them to the hot garlic infused olive oil in the saute pan. Raise the heat to high and cook, tossing frequently, about 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the cider vinegar and reduce the liquid to a glaze while tossing beans, another 2 to 3 minutes. Add the mint and toss to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary. Transfer the beans to a serving dish, garnish with fried garlic chips and enjoy!
