    From Bon Appetit, this is an easy side dish that goes very quickly. Fresh green beans are best, but this can be made with canned green beans also.

      5 Stars, we really enjoyed the crisp green beans with the red bell pepper strips for accent. It made a snappy side to Braised Chicken Thighs With Button Mushrooms #283649. Thanks for posting, that's just how we like our green beans. Made for Photo Tag.
