Green Bean Vinaigrette

In keeping with my tradition of quick and easy recipes, this is another qualifier.  I can quite comfortably polish off all the beans by myself in one sitting.  It does help that Pete says they are squeaky and steers clear of them. 🙂  If you want to get fancy, you could throw a few toasted flaked almonds over the top.

  1. I bet your vinaigrette would make me eat more green beans. Love the idea of sprinkling some toasted almonds on top too. Would be a delightful combination of texture and flavor. Mmmm! 🙂
    Hope you are having a beautiful week so far Miss Mandy. Hugs to you.
    Cheers, Anna

  2. Those do look good Mandy & I never would have thought to put a little brown sugar on them. I’m chuckling because I always think of doing something a little fancy (you know those presentation skills I’m lacking) but then I just say – eh…dig in & eat!

  3. Saving recipe for when my green beans are ready to harvest, Of course I need to plant them first am anxiously waiting for all the snow in my garden to melt and the soil to warm up.
