The green beans are coming! And once they start trickling in they come in full force with bushels a day being harvested. We love to sautee our green beans in a dab of butter with some minced garlic but you can’t do that every day of the week all summer long. That’s why I adore this recipe from Panning the Globe. It uses multiple varieties of beans and makes them the highlight of the meal – not the lowly side dish.
Lisa says, This salad salad has a wonderful combination of crunchy and tender vegetables, brightly-flavored with lots of minty basil and tangy lemon-yogurt dressing. Serve it for a casual picnic, a weeknight dinner, or a fancy buffet.
What could be better right? Any yellow bean will do while the yellow beans we planted this year are similar to these Heirloom Gold Mine beans.
