I did this as a side dish and pretty last minute for 14 people. (pressure) i left out all onions. It was just string beans and the Garlic Salt, Garlic Powder, and Pepper. It was amazing, had several people tell me it was the most suprising part of the dish. Plus, it was very easy to make! Totally recommend it.


Not having cocktail onions I substituted some sweet red peppers - WOW my anti-vegetable family ate the whole thing


I needed something different for fresh string beans and this seemed easy enough. I liked sauteeing the beans and the garlic powder was good, although I think I will use fresh diced garlic next time. My husband didn't like the flavor from the cocktail onions, I think since it's mostly vinegar! I thought it added a little punch without being overly powerful, but next time I will try the onions themselves without the liquid. Overall, we enjoyed this for a simple, but different way to eat the same old (but yummy) side dish.
