Another recipe from the South Beach Diet Parties & Recipes Cookbook. The book says that any good quality fresh green beans will do, but suggests that you look for haricots verts. the recipe looks marvelously fast and easy, especially if you use the pre-trimmed green beans from the supermarket. The book also suggests that the beans can be blanched one day in advance if you like. Another make-it-easier tip is to use minced garlic in a jar commonly found in supermarket produce sections (at least in California!).
