This lovely, delicious, and super easy salad will grace our holiday buffet tomorrow. My husband has requested a German Christmas, and this salad will give our German spread some green. And by using frozen vegetables, blanching the beans is not necessary, making this even easier to prepare.
German Green Bean Salad with Dill
- 1 lb frozen cut green beans, thawed
