CSA Share Ninja Rescue 2013: green beans

It's Monday once again -- the day we share the CSA Share Ninja Rescue, a weekly feature in which you tell me on Fridays what veg you got in your CSA share box (or found at the farmers' market) that you don't know what to do with and I'll give you a whole bunch of recipe ideas on the following Monday.

While I am still desperately waiting for tomatoes to start flooding the farmers' markets, beans are more than plentiful. Speaking from experience, there are only so many times your family will tolerate dinner with a side of steamed green beans before crying uncle. So this week we've got some fun and creative ways to use 'em up.

What did you get in your CSA box or pick up at the farmers' market this week? The Ninj wants to know.


  1. Now I would love that Green Bean slaw! Yummm!

  2. Pretty photo! We just picked even more green beans yesterday, and my girls and I love dilly beans. When I was in the garden I noticed there were some tiny zucchinis starting as well as some cukes. I am heading to Maine this weekend, so both will be the size of Fiats by the time I get home. I would love ideas for either of those.

    1. Isn't that the truth, about how fast zukes and cukes grow? I will definitely include both in the next week or two so check back!
