This recipe is exactly what I was looking for on the 'Zaar. I had some spicy, pickled Garlic that I used in place of fresh and added a little Dijon Mustard to the Vinegar and Olive Oil. A new way to serve an ordinary vegetable !!!
I am embarrassed to say I made this, but got too busy during the barbecue and never got a chance to sample it. Others who did try this dish loved it and it disappeared. I used Trader Joe's frozen green beans since they are nice and thin (like Haricot Vert except at a fraction of the price). I recommend that anyone try this simple side dish.
What a nice change from the traditional summer salads!I added a half julienned sweet red bell pepper for color.Served in at a bbq-rave reviews. Added salt for flawor- a keeper for sure. Thank you for sharing!
