These quick-pickled green beans are the ideal solution to a bounty of beans. They are a perfectly crisp and cool accompaniment to a sandwich in the hot summer and make a vibrant addition to a charcuterie board during the holidays.



Special equipment:
a 1-quart jar
  1. Heat 1 1/2 cups water and 2 tablespoons kosher salt in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the vinegar, sugar and garlic and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to dissolve the salt and sugar, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Pack the green beans and dill into a 1-quart jar. Pour in the hot brine to cover completely (you might not use all the brine).
  4. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes. Cover the jar and refrigerate at least 6 hours and up to 2 weeks.
