Default Grilled green beans

I am craving green beans! I will be making this tonight and will let you know how it goes.

Griilled green beans

6 cups lightly salted boiling water
1 pound green beans (approximately 5 cups), ends trimmed
1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar twin
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring water to a boil. Add the beans and partially cook for 4 to 5 minutes (depending on the degree of doneness you want). Remove from heat. Drain the beans in a colander and immediately immerse them in an ice water bath to stop from cooking; drain and set aside.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 1/2 teaspoons of the olive oil and vinegar, gorgonzola, brown sugar, garlic, green onion, thyme, and basil. Cook just until the ingredients start to combine, approximately 7 minutes. Remove from heat.

Toss the green beans in the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Lightly grill the beans on the barbecue grill approximately 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from barbecue and toss in the warm vinaigrette. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately.

Makes 6 servings.
