A gorgeous dish, it really should have a fancy name…a little wine, lemon and a handful of sun-dried tomatoes spark up gorgeous green beans, chicken and a few potatoes. Fingerling potatoes or Yukons are perfect but a red potato makes a great budget stand in. And everything is napped with that bright sauce. Shhh…don’t tell anyone how simple this dish is and they’ll think you’re a genius.
For times when you’re looking to dress up a meal, these simple green beans, tossed with a bit of Gorgonzola or Blue Cheese are perfect. Tossed with the hot beans, the cheese melts a bit into a creamy sauce and the Pecans add a bit of crunch and interest. Best part: it takes practically no time at all.
You’ll know the living is easy when you try this Tuna with Green Bean and Tomato Salad, served up with White Beans for a little extra protein and substance.This is the answer for those who think Nicoise looks good, but might be afraid their picky eaters would turn up their noses. There’s nothing unfamiliar here, but the bright, lemony dressing transforms these simple ingredients.
