I'm Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh growing herbs is a passion I've had for more than 20 years now. The Backyard Patch is my own herb business started in 1995. I specialize in fresh, amazing, organic blended herbs. Those for cooking, tea and bath -- and they are all home-grown and hand-blended. In the last 20 years I have gained a knowledge of herbs and their flavors that I share here.
Our local Farmer’s Market is every Wednesday.My husband and I stop on our way to work.This week there was an olive vender and some great Green Beans.Combining that with Dill from my garden and I came up with this great recipe for you to enjoy.Dill’s affinity for beans is obvious in this simple side dish.I love butter on my vegetables, but have been trying to cook with heart friendly ingredients this year, so I switched to olive oil.This recipe uses the best of the garden and lots of heart-healthy oils.
Rinse and trim the beans. Place a pot of water and the stove and bring to boiling.Add the beans to the boiling water and cook 3 minutes, or until barely tender. Drain immediately and toss with the remaining ingredients.Serve warm or cold.
