This is a quick, easy and flavorful Thanksgiving favorite in our family, and can be served hot or cold (we prefer hot). Credit goes to Aunt Nell and Cousin Mandi for this one! Mix a chopped tomato into the green beans after steaming, if desired.

I had higher expectations for this considering all the seasonings going on here. It was not nearly as full-flavored as I thought it would be. All I can say is that it was better than just plain cooked beans with nothing on them.

I made these beans for a dinner party and they were GREAT! I made the dressing earlier in the afternoon and when first made, I didn't think I was going to like it. Tasted bland. However, after a few hours of the flavors combining, it was very, very good. The only thing I might do different next time is to halve the recipe. I didn't need as much as it made.

A little too much onion and perhaps a little too heavy on the herbs...this just didn't turn out for me. I love green beans and this was actually better cold than warm and perhaps it was because it marinated for a bit. Not something I'd make again.
