Tender Green Bean with Mushroom & Lemon peel


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
I created this beautiful and delicious green bean dish tonight for dinner and served it with the Chick'n Salad Sandwich (Post Below).  The fresh, tender green beans were sooo....good. You have to give this one a try.  You could serve this at any holiday meal as well.
