Yum! The sauce rocks, I'm going to try it on other veggies.

MY REVIEW

Wow, this was really great. The sauce was simple to make (altho I omitted the onion) and were a wonderful addition to the green beans. My husband loved it as well. Definitely a keeper!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2010

I loved this dish and I'm not a big dill fan. I wanted to use fresh beans but it wasn't the right season. Frozen were fine. Drain the beans well so they don't dilute the sauce.
