For a long time yellow waxed beans were hard to find but now they are frequently available at my local supermarket (Publix). They taste the same as green beans – it is the color combination that I like. I made a quick olive ‘pesto’ – black olives, garlic and olive oil – and tossed the beans in the sauce. Good hot or cold. Goes well with lamb.

8 oz. thin green beans – topped and tailed
8 oz. yellow waxed beans – topped and tailed
1/2 cup of pitted black olives
2 cloves of garlic – roughly chopped
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Cook beans until just tender.
Put olives, garlic and olive oil in food processor and blend.
Toss beans and olive mixture.
