Neon Posy

Sunshine and Salt-Flecked

Sunshine and Salt-Flecked

These beans are so bright and fresh and colourful that they deserve to be called a posy. Beans, like most vegetables, become crisper and sunnier with a quick dunk into lightly salted boiling water, followed by an icy water rinse. I doused them generously with Maldon salt once they emerged from their baths. These blanched beans make a great snack for your lunch or, even better, a picnic in the sun.
