Honey-Mustard Green Beans Recipe

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.
