I came up with this recipe by accident, and it surprises me still how much I get requests for it. And I've seen peopld who say the don't like greenbeans seem to keep askin' for more,,,

Of course this dish is best using fresh green beans, but I've used canned grean beans for a quick dish,with good results, altho i can't say that frozen beans wereas good.
An addition I sometimes use is bacon. cooked and chopped. Use the greae to saute your vegies in instead of the plive oil.
(*I've found that "Marie's " blue cheese dressing really gives it the best flavor.
