Dijon Green Beans with Walnuts

August 7, 2012

Green beans are one of those vegetables that make me think about Summer growing up. Helping my mom snap the ends off the beans before she made them for dinner always made me feel like such a grown up.

When they were on the plate, no matter how she cooked them, my dad would say, “This is really good!” and my mom would reply, “Heather helped me cook the beans.” Even though all I really did was snap the ends I felt so accomplished that I had helped cook dinner. Such fun family dinner memories;)

These beans are probably the easiest side I’ve made in a long time. They’re tossed in a dressing that contains three ingredients and takes all of 30 minutes to make. And when I say 30 I actually mean 10, this is how long it takes to snap your beans, make your dressing, toast the walnuts, and toss them.

Easy Peasy!
