 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      pounds        green beans --  tipped and tailed
    3      tablespoons   butter
    2                    garlic cloves -- peeled and chopped
    1                    red bell pepper -- seeded and sliced
   14                    Greek-style olives -- drain pit and halve
    1      tablespoon    chopped fresh oregano
    2      tablespoons   fresh lemon juice
                         Salt and pepper
 
 Bring a large quantity of salted water to the boil in a large saucepan. Add
 the beans and blanch 5 to 7 minutes. Drain, refresh under cold water, and
 drain again. This can be done 3 or 4 days in advance. In a skillet, heat the
 butter until it sings . Add the garlic and red pepper and cook until the
 garlic turns golden, being careful not to let it burn. This will only take a
 minute or two. Add the blanched beans, olives, oregano, lemon juice, and salt
 and pepper to taste. Toss for about 2 minutes, until the beans are heated
 through.
 
 Yield: 6 to 8 servings
