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

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
