Honey-Mustard Green Beans

I used this recipe as an occasion to get my kids involved in cooking. They had fun snapping ends off the beans and they delighted in whisking together the dressing ingredients. In addition I was surprised how much they liked the green beans with this hint of sweetness.

    Lovely flavour. Added an extra teaspoon of Dijon mustard for extra flavour. My husband doesn't even like green beans and he gave this a 10! Winning recipe!

    My 8 year old was not interested in green beans until this recipe, and now they are his favorite!
