Delicious! Pickled green beans essentially. I made this over a week ago and forgot about it. Found it today and was worried it wouldn't be okay. It is! Nice and vinegary--just how I like it. Thanks! Read More

This is a fine basic recipe (don't rush the marinade time -- it'll be worth it in a week!) but I just had to play with it. For a great warm-weather side dish halve a good number of grape tomatoes add crumbled feta cheese and toss. It's a pretty -- and pretty tasty -- green/red/white salad. Read More
