Notes Trisha Kruse from Eagle, Idaho: “This crisp, summer salad keeps well in the refrigerator…if it lasts that long. The tangy sweetness and toasty flavor in the sesame dressing are almost addictive!”

RE: Gingered Green Bean Salad

This is a wonderful Salad, full of taste. I’ve made it for several showers and potlucks. It keeps well and I’ve never had a single leftover to take home. It’s something different from the same old thing. I highly recommend you try it.

My husband did like this, or so he said. But I ended up throwing most of it away. I don't think it was the recipe as much as our taste. We just didn't like it.
