These Green Beans with Ginger Soy Dressing are fantastic!
I wanted to share this recipe for Green Beans with Ginger Soy Dressing because it was really, really good. So much so that my mind is swirling with many ideas for uses with the dressing. I even poured some of the leftover dressing on a black rice salad I made that needed a boost and it was great! The green beans are served as a cold side dish, but I can’t see any reason why you couldn’t serve it warm as well. I found this recipe in a great cookbook named Hot Vegetables. Such a great cookbook, I love the recipes in it!Print
