Snap/"green" beans (wax or green)

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Boil yellow (or green) "green" beans in salted water until tender (just beyond tender crisp). Drain and rinse with cold water to stop their cooking.
  2. Turn the beans into bowl and keep them at room temperature up to 3 hours. When you're ready to eat, toss the beans with a generous amount of coarse salt and 1/2-1 cup of minced lemon basil leaves for every ½ pound of beans. Enjoy them at room temperature.
