    Took shortcuts. I cooked the beans for 5 minutes. Next time I'll just blanch them to keep them extra crispy. Also, I'd probably make it the day before because it tasted better the next day. - 03 Sep 2010


    This was a nice summer side dish. We dipped bread into the leftover dressing...can't let a good thing go to waste!! - 03 Sep 2010
