Salsa Green Beans Recipe

This simple treatment is a wonderful way of dressing up green beans. Maybe the reason I really enjoy this vegetable is because Mom has been fixing it this way since I was a little girl.

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen cut green beans
  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

"I had a lot of leftover green beans and stumbled upon this recipe when looking to make a side dish for quesadilla night. It was okay - nothing spectacular."
