Quick Pickled Green Bean Salad

Canned string beans make a great Quick Pickled Green Bean Salad! This is a nice light side dish for summer and my son is always looking for something pickled with Sunday dinner...
Doesn't hurt that it costs about 50¢ either:@)

Quick Pickled Green Bean Salad
14.5 oz can of green beans, drained
Onion, thinly sliced, maybe 1 Tblsp
1/4 C cider vinegar
1 Tblsp sugar-we like a little pucker to our pickles... add more to taste
Few grinds of black pepper
Barely a dusting of garlic powder-so little I'm not even sure why I use it, but I do
Salt if desired-I don't add it
  • Gently mix everything and let marinate for a few hours stirring occasionally. I make it in a Lock-N-Lock bowl and just turn it upside down each time I pass it. I'm sure the Food Police wouldn't approve but it sits out on the counter until dinner time. Yep, I am a kitchen rebel:@)
Eat well and Have a Happy Day!

  6. I agree with your son- Sunday dinners are improved with the addition of pickles. These sound good! :)

  16. Lynn, I can't wait to try making some of these. Poor DH has to limit his salt intake so he can't have the regular pickles that he loves so much. This might be a way for him to enjoy that sour-pickled-pucker flavor that he craves.
    Thanks SO much for sharing this with us.

    Hugs,
    Rett
