Schnittbohnensalat (Green-Bean Salad)

Top Review by Jill4man

Simple and simply yummy! I was looking for something German to go with my little Octoberfest party I was having and I thought by the name this must be German ;-) Went to the farmers market and got the most beautiful green beans and this salad was simple and highlighted the beans wonderfully!! I used fresh dill and white onions...thanks!!
