    sugarpea's Note:

    The best way to enjoy this dish is with dried beans, freshly cooked to perfection and fresh tarragon, never dried. My favorite way to serve it is hot but it can be served as a salad at room temperature as well. From Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author. Cook time includes time to soak beans.

      another great recipe from sugarpea! i never know which one to make next...but chose this one as i was pressed for time and had tarragon on hand for once! so delicious and just perfect for my dinner tonite. i ate it at room temp but im sure it would be just as great hot or cold! i followed the recipe exactly and also added a squeeze of lemon as the other reviewer. thank you for another great dinner!!!

      Delicious - but I'm a bean lover! I thought it just needed a 'little something' to brighten up the flavour and a squeeze of lemon was perfect. Thanks sugarpea.

      Well I had never tried fresh tarragon before, and unfortunately, I am not a fan. Too much like licorice. For those who like it though, I'm sure this would be a delicious dish.
