Ingredients
  

  • 3 Tb red wine vinegar
  • 3 Tb extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 c chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoon sea salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry dill
  • 1 teaspoon dry parsley
  • 1 lb fresh green beans, washed and trimmed (you can cut these in 1-inch pieces if you like, or leave them whole)

Instructions
 

  • To begin, combine all but the green beans (and only 1 teaspoon of the salt) in a small jar with a lid. Cover, close the lid tightly, and shake well to combine. Set this aside for now.
  • In a large pot, bring 2-3 quarts of water with the remaining teaspoon of sea salt to a boil.
  • Toss in the green beans and bring it back to a boil, then turn the heat to medium. Let these cook, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes, or until the beans are just tender, but not soft.
  • While they cook, prepare a large bowl by filling it half way with ice water.
  • Pour the beans out into a colander and drain the boiling water from the beans. Immediately transfer the beans into the ice water to stop the cooking process and lock in their beautiful color.
  • Spread a couple layers of paper towels out on a baking sheet, or on your counter. Using a pair of tongs, or your God-given tongs (your hands), remove the cooled beans from the ice water and spread them out onto the paper towels to remove the excess water.
  • Once the beans have drained and are somewhat dried off, place them in a serving bowl.
  • Give the jar of dressing a good shake and then pour the dressing over the beans.
  • Use a pair of tongs to turn the beans and coat them with the dressing.
  • Serve and enjoy!
