"I liked this recipe and will make again. I didn't have red onion and I used frozen green beans. I definitely will use fresh next time because I don't really enjoy the frozen bean texture. I also will use red onion too. I enjoyed the dressing on the beans and I love parmesan."

"This was a nice and light green bean recipe, nothing like any other recipe. I made as-is except I forgot to add the parmasan. It was still wonderful. Will definitely do again."

"Why do people rate recipes they don't even try? This was excellent! The dressing, onion and tomatoes are warmed by the hot green beans. It's quite different from most vegetable side dishes I've made. I did add 2 teaspoons of honey to the vinegar mixture since it seemed rather tart. Loved it!"

"This recipe sounds interesting but I'm reluctant to try it as there seems to be a step missing in this recipe. Do you drain and cool the green beans and then toss them with the tomatoes, onions and dressing or do you add the green beans drained and hot to the dressing????? I only given it a 3 star as I'm not sure if I would like it or not or if I would make it again."
