"There are two ways you can do this recipe. You can boil your beans, dress them and serve immediately. I prefer it dressed and left to marinate in the fridge overnight, which gives you something closer to a pickled bean."

The store had no Romano beans, so I used green beans and also used white balsamic vinegar. One thing that I will do differently next time is to steam them in the microwave, as I know exactly how long it takes to cook them the way we like them. I overcooked the beans a bit today, but that's not the recipe's fault. I'd recommend that you use a good-quality olive oil, as it's an important element of this recipe. I will not put the beans in a bag the next time, as too much of the garlic-mint-oil mixture stuck to the side of the bag, making it difficult to get out. Simple yet elegant presentation for a side dish/salad that can be made early in the day. Will be making this a lot, definite keeper!
