Green Bean Salad
Cut the ends off of one pound of green beans and then cut them into 2 inch lengths. Drop them into boiling water and cook them uncovered for 10-15 minutes. Drain the beans and then plunge into ice water to stop the cooking.
While the green beans are cooking combine:
3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons of light olive oil
1/2 cup low sodium chicken stock
2 teaspoons salt/black pepper to taste
