When you find a vegetable recipe that demands second helpings, it's definitely worth sharing. I made these green beans for a dinner party, and that's exactly what happened! I like to use haricots verts, the skinny type of green bean. —Samantha Bowman, Houston, Texas

"Thought this was good. Had to add a little more salt but overall I would make again. I think it would be yummy to try adding some halved grape tomatoes next time."

"This recipe just didn't work for us, maybe I cooked the beans too long? But the feta didn't seem to go with it and no one really enjoyed these flavors together."

"Please have more recipes like this. I cannot make many TOH recipes because they contain dairy products that are hard to substitute. Would like to see more recipes easy for lactose intolerant people to use--adding suitable substitutes after recipes would be very helpful, especially for things like condensed milk, sour cream, cream cheese, etc. FYI, feta cheese is always okay. I look forward to using this recipe."

"I cannot wait to try this...If there were 6 stars I would give them even from just reading this recipe...I agree with jamieml.....I read and enjoy reading lots of TOH recipes, but health issues make reading them as far as I go..."

"I am already giving this five stars before even trying out the recipe - simply because it's the first recipe I have received from Taste of Home in my email in box in AGES that couldn't be renamed "Heart Attack on a Plate." This green bean recipe looks appetizing, fresh, healthy and perfect for a hot summer night. THANK YOU for sending me something I can eat, enjoy and feel good about! Can't wait to try it out. Maybe tonight!"
