This is a dish on the Thanksgiving Side Dish List and it not only goes well with holiday dinners, but those in the spring or summer. On regular evenings, have them as a side for chicken, fish, or beef.

On non-holidays, I eat these beans washed, uncooked and without sauce. If they’re fresh, you’ll be amazed at the flavor and you’ll love the crunch. Ty it sometime if you haven’t already!
