Sesame Green Beans

sesame green beans

We love this delicious side dish, which uses sesame oil to give body and nuttiness to crisp, garlicky beans. Pair it with grilled steak or chicken for a satisfying, no-fuss weeknight meal. Try it alongside grilled steak or chicken. Leftovers (if there are any!), will be even more flavorful the next day.

Our favorite part about this simple salad is that it can be prepared up to 12 hours in advance, which means you can make it in the evening and enjoy it for lunch the next day.
