I did this as a side dish and pretty last minute for 14 people. (pressure) i left out all onions. It was just string beans and the Garlic Salt Garlic Powder and Pepper. It was amazing had several people tell me it was the most suprising part of the dish. Plus it was very easy to make! Totally recommend it. Read More

I will try this next time without the marinated cocktail onions. It was a bit too much vinegar tasting for us. Read More

I needed something different for fresh string beans and this seemed easy enough. I liked sauteeing the beans and the garlic powder was good although I think I will use fresh diced garlic next time. My husband didn't like the flavor from the cocktail onions I think since it's mostly vinegar! I thought it added a little punch without being overly powerful but next time I will try the onions themselves without the liquid. Overall we enjoyed this for a simple but different way to eat the same old (but yummy) side dish. Read More

Wonderful dish. We gobbled them up. I omitted the onions and added lots of grated parmesan. The parmesan was a delicious touch! Read More

So easy to make yet absolutely delicious. I replaced the cocktail onions with a quarter cup of white onions. Served over rice for a quick lunch. Loved it! Read More
