Do you like cold green beans?

I saw a recipe for Oriental Green Beans and though I'd make it, then I saw a similar recipe, but served cold, not hot.

What do you think?

MW, I don't know what your recipe is, but I've had a similar style cold. Yum. All other recipies, hot. Raw - the best!

Sure strange you bring this up! I just started serving cold string beans to my dogs. They love them and vet said most veggies are good for them. They have no complaints.

we had some fresh cooked green beans out of the garden the other night, they were heavenly.

Another green bean fan here. For cold eating enjoyment, I do like them best just crisp-tender, then tossed with a nice vinegarette-type dressing, alone or part of a nice Salad Nicoise. They're also nice dressed with a little Amish sweet-sour dressing as well.

I'm kicking myself for not growing them again this year. I love them right off the vine.

MostlyWater, if you blanch the beans first then immediately put them into an ice water bath they will stay bright green and al dente.

My brother has to feed his dog Green beans. The dog is nuts for them.

As for me, they work great in 3 bean salad.. Green beans, wax beans, red beans... tasty.
