Not just a Thanksgiving side dish, enjoy green bean recipes that will compliment your meals year-round.
Not only high in nutritional value but also great in texture and taste, green beans are as ubiquitous to the American table
as mashed potatoes or broccoli. Whether steamed, fried, or used in a hearty casserole, these summer veggies are delicious
and easy to incorporate into your healthy diet.
First up is our Quick-Pickled Dilly Green Beans. A fresh alternative to pickled cukes, these crisp, crunchy treats make a zesty summer snack, garnish for a Bloody Mary, or condiment in a sandwich or salad. They're easy to prepare and will keep up to a week in the refrigerator.

Move over plain green beans for this delicious side serving. The kalamata olives give these beans its saltiness, toasted almonds
a bit of crunch, and a touch of citrus thanks to lemon rind.

To make this a full whole-grain salad, avoid pearled farro, which has been partially processed. Yes, it takes a little longer,
but to save time, hunt down some precooked whole-grain farro. It's found on the rice aisle. The recipe, however, begins with
uncooked grain, which needs an hour in the pot and a little time to cool. We recently tasted—and loved—Wild Planet's wild
albacore tuna, jarred in olive oil, which is firm, meaty, rich, and moist. We also love that it's sustainable, 100% pole and
troll caught. Visit wildplanetfoods.com to purchase online or locate retailers.
