very tasty! Iused about 1/2 the garlic and that I thought was plenty. I also doubled the amount of mint. Be careful not to over cooked the beans> I think 6 to 7 mins. is long enough. I also used this as a cold bean salad. Which was delicious but make sure to cool beans befor adding ingred. Thanks!

The beans and mint are nice together, but there is far too much oil and garlic in the recipe. I would cut the garlic in half and use less oil, this way the salad is less slimy.

You do taste the garlic in this recipe, but both my husband and I enjoyed the taste very much, and would rate this recipe very good. If I made any modifications, I'd increase the Mint leaves.
