Green beans are everywhere right now, and the ways to prepare them are endless. We love green beans and can eat them just about any way: raw, cooked, by themselves, and with dips and dressings.
We love this recipe because it is very simple, yet the flavors are amazing. Apple Cider Vinegar is used in the dressing, which we love because real apple cider vinegar is gluten free. Be sure, however, tat you are getting true apple cider vinegar, and not vinegar that is apple cider flavored. The flavoring may contain gluten and it could cause reaction, depending on the kind of vinegar that it is. Many debate whether vinegar causes reaction since, even when made from grains that can cause a gluten-related outbreak, it is distilled. But if you know that you react to certain vinegars, then trust your body and avoid them.
This salad is perfect for lunch, a light dinner, or to bring to a potluck.
