Do more than regular, cooked green beans by following this spicy green bean salad recipe.




  • 2 cups green beans (about 1/2 to 2/3 pound fresh)
  • 1 cup finely chopped peeled cucumber
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons white wine, cider or sherry vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh jalapeno pepper
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt



  1. Trim stem ends from green beans. Cut beans into 1/2 inch pieces. Bring a large saucepan 3/4 full of water to a boil. Add beans and cook 2 to 5 minutes until they turn bright green and are tender-crisp. Drain beans, and then sumberge in a bowl of ice water for 2 to 5 minutes, until chiled. Drain again and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl mix all ingredients. Cover and store in the refrigerator at least 2 hours to allow flavors to blend.
