MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2011

I really liked these green beans! Very simple to make. I didn't put quite as much salt on them as the recipe called for, and they were still delicious. I wanted to eat the whole pound of them! Will definitely be making these again.

The idea of these sounded really yummy, but the olive oil on them to me is gross. Next time I make them Im puting butter in place of the olive oil.
