String Bean Salad
SALATIT EL LOUBIEH
Wash tender fresh green string beans. Remove stem ends
and strings if necessary. Cut lengthwise or in several pieces
crosswise. Cook in pressure cooker for 12 minutes under pressure.
When beans are cool, place them in a salad bowl and dress
to taste with lemon juice, olive oil, crushed garlic and salt.
