Green beans are great, but they can seem ordinary on their own. Just a couple extra ingredients give them sweet and salty attitude. —Shannon Dobos, Calgary, Alberta

"This is a delicious and easy recipe to prepare. I blanched the beans several days ahead, and I had cut the beans into segments instead of keeping them whole only because some of the beans had blemishes. The sweet, salty, spicy, and crunchy tastes complimented the brightly colored beans. This recipe is a keeper!"

"Made these the other night and they are wonderful! The flavors blended perfectly and so easy to make. I didn't have any leftover which is great from a family who has several "nothing green" eaters."

"I made this recipes the other night to test for Thanksgiving , I love the infusion of the soy sauce and garlic. The honey help keep the salty part of the soy down. I have never really cooked with fresh green beans but this recipe made it simple."

"Delicious flavorful Green Beans! I prefer baking my green beans. So I slathered them with some butter and olive oil, poured the sauce over it and baked at 425 degrees for 20ish minutes. Love them!??"
