Green bean is on top of our shopping list in Summer. It is the same for everyone in Turkey as green bean is one of the best signs of summer. There is the option of canned ones in Winter, but they absolutely lack flavor and we don’t prefer them. We are patient enough to wait for 6 or 7 months to eat real beans. When it is finally Summer, we happily use it in various forms. I shared 2 different recipes with green beans before: Green Breans and Green Beans With Corn, which are generally served warm as a main dish with pilaf. This time I’m sharing green bean salad, which could be a light and tasty lunch or a refreshing side dish accompanying a meat or chicken dish.
This is another favorite green bean recipe of us. How do you enjoy yours?
