      Definately a keeper! Got a lot of green beans from my CSA and was looking for something interesting to do with them. I'm growing parsley, tarragon and chives, so this was perfect! I used scallions in place of the shallot and extra orange juice (with pulp) in place of the orange zest (as I had none of either). I used baby red potatoes (and they took much longer than 10 minutes to cook) and added just a few dashes of salt. A nice light potato salad with a great bite. Thanks for sharing!

      Keeper ! Great recipe for the fresh green beans in our garden. I had to substitute a bit. I used half of a small yellow onion and subbed a lemon for the orange. Great fresh taste and flavor. Will try with orange next and we will be having this one a lot this summer. Thanks for sharing it.

      This was very good. I had to leave the shallots out, but made it as written otherwise. Sweet and tangy, but not too summery to eat in the winter. Thanks katie in the UP, from a "troll" ;-)
