Ingredients
  

For the Pickled Green Beans:

  • 1 cup fresh green beans ends chopped
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoon sugar or ½ packet stevia
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • sprigs of fresh dill
  • 1 ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • thin slices of onion
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

For the Salad:

  • 2 cups torn lettuce or spinach leaves
  • ½ cup grape tomatoes halved
  • ½ cup cucumber thinly sliced
  • 2 hard boiled eggs halved
  • ½ cup pickled green beans
  • salad dressing of your choice

Directions
 

  • Add the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and garlic to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat and let it cool.
  • Measure green beans to the length that will fit into a 16 oz. mason jar. Trim ends if needed.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, fill a bowl with cold water and ice cubes. When the water is boiling, add the green beans and cook for 1 minute before transferring them directly to the ice bath to stop the cooling process. Drain and set aside.
  • Add the peppercorns, crushed red pepper, dill and onion slice to the mason jar. Place the green beans on top and pour in the brining liquid, leaving ¼ inch of space. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 days to allow the flavors to develop.
  • Prepare the salad by adding the lettuce to a bowl. Top with the tomatoes, cucumber, hard boiled eggs, pickled green beans, and slices of Irish cheddar cheese. Drizzle salad dressing on top.

Notes

Note: Pickled green beans should be kept in the refrigerator for 2 days prior to eating to really allow the flavors to develop.
