  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 small garlic clove crushed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Pinch of sugar


  • Mix all dressing ingredients in a lidded jar. Shake to combine and set aside.
  • Cook green beans to desired doneness. Drain off water and immediately immerse the beans in very cold or ice water if you wish to serve cold. Drain beans and dry on paper towels. To serve hot, place drained beans in a bowl
  • Add the dressing and grated cheese to the beans and toss to coat.
  • Cold salad: Place the bowl in the refrigerator and chill for a few hours. The longer they marinate, the better they will taste.
