 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Green beans
    1       tb           Butter
    1       tb           Olive oil
    1       sm           Garlic clove, minced
    2                    Scallions, finely chopped
      1/2   c            Pimento-stuffed green olives
                          -- sliced
    1 1/2   tb           Lemon juice
                         Salt and pepper
 
   Cook beans in a large pot of boiling salted water
   until just tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.  Drain in a
   colander and plunge immediately into ice water to stop
   the cooking.  Drain again, and cut into 1 pieces. Set
   aside. Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet.
   Add garlic and scallions and saute until softened.
   Add beans, olives and lemon juice; saute until heated
   through.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve
   immediately.
   
   Renee Shepherd writes:  “A slightly off beat but
   delicious combination we enjoyed throughout the green
   bean season this year.”
