  • Yield: 6 Servings



  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the beans and cook about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, prepare an ice-water bath. Drain the beans and immediately plunge in the ice water for 5 minutes. Drain well and transfer to a large bowl. Add the tomatoes and onions.
  2. Place the oil, basil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake well to emulsify. Drizzle over the beans and toss to evenly coat. Serve at room temperature or cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours and serve chilled.
