CSA Haul lemon dijon green beans

This week we got a batch of delicious green beans in our CSA haul. Sometimes you want your green beans to be simple with just a pinch of salt. Other times, you want your green beans to be bright and lively – this was one of those times.

The addition of kalamata olives and almonds give this dish a nice variety of textures and flavors. And the best part? This dish tastes indulgent while still being nutritious. We hope you try it out!
