Reviews for Green Bean & Balsamic Salad
"Really, really good. I used steamed beans from the frozen section. I would cook the beans a little longer if you like them more tender."
"have made something similar to this for years and this turned out well, especially the dressing. however, I would cook the beans a minute or so longer to add a little more tender to the crisp."
"I've made this twice in the last week! Great way to use fresh veggies from the garden, and everybody loved it!"
"This has a great tangy flavor! Lil Man declared OMGoodness at his first bite. I think next time I'll add some small cubes of fresh mozzarella for a little something extra."
