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

  • 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
