Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made it for Mother's day and everyone LOVED it! I made it for Mother's day and everyone LOVED it! Even my picky brother who doesn't eat anything green ate it. I used a little less onion then it called for because I was afraid of the taste being to strong for the non onion likers in my family. I will make this at least one a month and maybe try to add different types of veggies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe is very versatile. This recipe is very versatile. I have tried using different dressings, I've added garlic and a variety of spices. I've also added tuna or chicken even different beans (garbanzo, black, kidney), this way it becomes a complete meal instead of a side dish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My family liked it. My family liked it. The cooking time could be extended as the beans we very crispy. I substituted light raspberry vinaigrette dressing and green onion, since that is what I had on hand. I also added some garlic, cayenne, and black pepper. It was tasty!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from An odd combination. An odd combination. I took this to an outing and NOBODY went back for seconds. Most people left theirs on their plates. Also I left the dish I brought it in because I didn't want anyone to see that I was the one that made this horrible mess.

I used fresh green beans and next time I will need to cook them for 5 extra minutes because the time called for in the recipe was not quite long enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I tried this recipe last night and I was very disappointed. I tried this recipe last night and I was very disappointed. The beans were too chewy. I live in a high altitude and wonder if that was the problem. Not enough moisture to properly "steam" them. I won't try it again.
