A very nice salad type side dish to serve with the evening meal. I loved the flavors! I only had frozen, french cut green beans, so I cooked them until crisp-tender and then followed the recipe. I had freeze-dried oregano and used 2 tsp. We enjoyed this and will be having it again. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
