Green Bean Salad1

This recipe has been in my family for generations.  I remember my Grandmother then my Mother making it and now I make it.  I made this salad with fresh beans from my garden over the summer and it was amazing.

1 Lb Green Beans
2 tsp Salt
2 TBSP Olive Oil
Juice of 1 Lemon
1 Garlic Clove – Grated

Clean the green beans, washing them and removing the ends.  In a large pot, bring enough water to a boil to fit the beans.  Salt the boiling water.  Put the beans in the boiling water.  When the water returns to a boil, put your timer on for exactly 2 minutes.  Immediately take the beans out of the boiling water and submerge in an ice bath.
Drain the beans and put them in a large bowl.  Add the oil, salt, lemon juice and garlic.  Toss until all the beans are coated.  Serve
