Ginger-Peanut Green Bean Salad

This green bean recipe showcases crisp, fresh-from-the-garden produce with a zesty peanut vinaigrette. Red chilis and chopped nuts add interesting texture and color. For variety, you could substitute glazed pecans for the peanuts or cashews; baby turnips or julienned jicama could sub in for the radish. —Nancy Elliott, Houston, Texas
