pickled green beans

I love pickled green beans. In a martini or just as a snack and would love any recommendations or recipes on the brine. Thanks in advance you hounds!
I like them in a martini too. The recipe I've used is very similar to dill pickles -- mixing vinegar with hot water (I think it may be 3-1 parts) with kosher salt and dillweed or seeds. Variations can be adding a garlic clove, fresh jalapeno, or use a different fresh herb like basil or cilantro. You can also vary the vinegar for taste -- rice vinegar for delicate, cider for something stronger.
I love love love the Rick's Picks Wasabeans sold at the Greenmarkets. I'm planning on trying to make something similar myself this summer -- the brine is soy-based with wasabi, making the beans rich and salty with just a little bit of a spice.
I think I'm going to add some wasabi paste to this brine to make mine: http://www.whats4eats.com/recipes/r_p...
