Bloody Mary – Pickled Green Beans


Justin Chapple loves drinking Bloody Marys, so he created a fantastic Bloody Mary "brine"—made with tomato juice, vinegar, horseradish, peppercorns and garlic—which he boils and pours over green beans. Once they're chilled, the beans are completely irresistible. They're perfect eaten on their own, but also delicious served with an actual Bloody Mary.
