You can substitute these with any type of green or wax bean. During bean season our garden overflows so any new recipe I find I gladly try. These are fresh and light.

YUM! This was a very fresh tasting green bean dish. We loved it! I used my homegrown Meyer lemon which made it even better!! Made for PAC Spring 2012.
