    I added very thinly sliced red onion. Added a great taste and texture to it.

    I had no green beans but wanted to make this recipe . No problem I used Asparagus and then followed through with everything else. It was most enjoyable and its a quick fix. I will use the Beans next time and I have no doubt that it too will be just as Tasty *JanieTaste of Home Volunteer Field Editor
