I like to buy the French haricots vert, like from Trader Joe’s. You open the package, dump them in a bowl, and toss in some EVOO or this Garlic Expression salad dressing. <—– Which speaking of easy; make your life even more easy by purchasing this dressing…. I found it in the produce section of the market, and it is phenomenal. Marinate chicken, pork chops, or shrimp in it. Toss vegetables before grilling or roasting, and of course, toss your everyday salad with it. It is so so good!
