Slow Sides #3 - Green Beans


Green Beans is the weekly ingredient, and AnnieNC of Churches in Venice chose it for us. She gave us the choice of two green bean recipes, one a cold salad and one a hot side dish, and both were from one of her favorite food blogs, 101 Cookbooks.

Here is the link to the Summer Green Bean Salad recipe (scroll down a little bit for the actual recipe).

I made a few little changes to the recipe - I added lemon zest to the dressing and substituted pepitas for the toasted hazelnuts, but I have decided I am not crazy about pepitas, so I will get some hazelnuts next time. I also skipped the frisee because I didn't have anything similar to that. I did also add the optional bit of honey because my overzealous use of lemon made the dressing kind of bitter. It turned out great, and I had some left over for another batch.


We had the second green bean recipe the next evening, and it too was great. Here is the link to the recipe Annie provided us from 101 Cookbooks. Again, you should scroll down for the actual recipe.

Both recipes were delicious in their own way - definitely keepers!

Glad you liked them - both of your photos are great! I want to use hazelnuts next time too; I had some leftover toasted pepitas that I'd used to make pesto and they were fine, but I bet hazelnuts are better. I still need to make the second recipe (too hot to cook here in NC right now!).

Glad our blogs are working again!
