string beans
Also known as snap beans or green beans, nutrient-filled string beans aren’t just for Thanksgiving casseroles.

Piles of slender green and yellow beans are spilling over tables at the farmers’ market this time of year. Whatever color you choose (they have similar flavor), they’re marvelous for salads and stir fries, but that’s not all. Here are 5 delectable uses you probably haven’t tried… it’s time to start!

  • Grilled in a foil packet with olive oil, lemon and garlic
  • Pickled with red chilies
  • Blanched with ranch dressing for dipping
  • Dried and sprinkled with sea salt
  • Sauteed with butter and topped with toasted pine nuts and fresh dill

Recipes to try:
