This keeps the green beans deliciously crunchy
For firm beans in bright green, you should blanch the beans. Blanching is a cooking technique in which the beans are briefly immersed in boiling water and then immediately cooled in ice water. This process serves several purposes: the beans become more digestible, retain their color and are then easier to process, such as freezing. Since the beans for the Mediterranean bean salad are fully cooked, they stay in the boiling water longer than usual for blanching. The ice water bath is still recommended afterwards.
