This has been the most successful year for Beans.

We planted them after removing the peas, which meant, we had to wait patiently for a late crop,

but it was worth it! We are filling up freezer bags and have had many good meals!

I like them simply steamed on their own or with onions & potatoes, topped with basil butter. I tried something new, making a nice hearty warm salad, another favourite  😉

Here’s what I did;

Beans, cut in 1 in. pieces, steamed or lightly boiled

Summer Squash, sliced thinly (approx. 1/4 in)

Arugula or Lettuce ( dressed with olive oil, salt & pepper)

Sweet Onions finely diced

Apple sliced a little thinner than the squash

Apple Cider Vinegar

Maple Syrup

E.V. Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper

Crumbled Bacon ( warm )

Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Cook beans, Sauté onions  in olive oil and salt till tender( 5 min. approx.)  add the summer squash and sliced apples cook till squash is tender, then add vinegar & syrup, mix and remove from heat,  top a dressed bed of Lettuce or Arugula with mixture, and add additional toppings of grated sharp cheddar, crumbled bacon bits. Add more seasoning if you need to .

( I do think adding some toasted chopped nuts , instead of bacon, would be awesome too)

Sorry no picture , next time  😉
