    I too got the recipe years ago from a neighbor! This is a delicious salad/side dish. I like to let it marinate in the refrigerator for a bit with the dressing on it. Fresh dill and fresh garlic a must. This salad holds well for a couple days if the beans are cooked al dente.

    I really enjoyed this recipe a ton. I used frozen green bean I nuked in the micorwave, only about 1 1/2 cups. I made the full recipe for the dressing and served it on a potato salad for lunch and had the green beans for dinner after they chilled in the fridge for a few hours. I used pin nuts since I like them a lot more in my salads than pecans and used less olive oil but other than that I made as written. The feta goes great with the dressing and veggies. Excellent recipe!

    We loved this fresh light tasting salad! The flavors go very well together and it's pretty. Next time I think I'll leave out the nuts...hubby didn't like them. Made for Zaar Tag.


I am the mother of four boys--two sons and two stepsons. I am also the grandmother of one very sweet and precocious 3 yr old boy. I was once a healthcare administrator but quit a few years ago to stay home with my youngest. Since he has started to school, I am back to working part time. <br> Next to my family, cooking is my passion. I have a wonderful husband who will try anything. He is my biggest fan and a discerning critic. A couple of years ago, we started a dinner club with friends who enjoy our passion for good food. We have shared many wonderful meals together. <br> My favorite cookbook would have to be a family cookbook that my mom and cousin and I put together a couple of years ago. We shared all the favorites that had been passed down through the generations as well as new favorites. <br> My biggest pet peeve is picky eaters who refuse to try anything new. It bothers me more with adults than with kids, but I love that my six year old will eat just about anything I put in front of him. There is something very gratifying about "grooming" the next generation of foodies. <br><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <br><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <br><img src=""> <br><img src="">
