Chef`s Tip

To achieve a bright green color for your beans, blanch them in boiling salted water for 1 minute then immediately drain and place them in ice cold water. Remove them from the cold water and drain until dry. Placing them in ice cold water stops further cooking, keeping the beans crispy and bright green.
