I used this recipe as an occasion to get my kids involved in cooking. They had fun snapping ends off the beans and they delighted in whisking together the dressing ingredients. In addition I was surprised how much they liked the green beans with this hint of sweetness.

I like starting out with recipe ideas and adding ingredients to make them mine. This bean dish, passed to our family by a friend, got a double-dash of barbecue sauce flavor from me. I have all sons—no daughters. But I'm not afraid of losing our family recipes. My boys love to help cook!
