Green Bean Salad

The beauty of summer cooking is that food can be made so fast and fresh with the bevy of fresh fruits and vegetables that are available. Sure, they can be doctored up and heavily prepared, but they often don’t need to be. It really only takes a few fresh chopped greens to making delicious green goddess dressing, baking asparagus takes 30 minutes or less, and a simple arugula salad merely takes minutes! I love taking advantage of this time of year, specifically the green vegetables that are available. Here are a few ways I like to simply prepare them. How do you like to prepare your summer greens?

    Thank you for a vegetarian list! It’s always so hard for me to find new recipes for my family that aren’t meat-based.
