Green Bean Salad

Green Bean Salad

When Publix had a 50% off sale on Bird's Eye products, I picked up as many items as looked good. The bag of white and green beans with baby carrots looked different, and I took picked one up. I very rarely make the recipes on the back of a package, but I had some bean sprouts that needed to be used up and the recipe on the back for a been salad with the Bird's Eye bag and some bean sprouts sounded good and easy. The recipe called for the beans to be cooked, diced onions to be added in, and for the mix to be topped with a honey mustard salad dressing, which I had to make from scratch because I never by such a variety. Perhaps the dressing was the sour note, perhaps it was the quality of the vegetables. Either way, it was a bad move. And the leftovers the next day were even worse. (See, I don't like to waste food, and I don't believe in sending Paul leftovers that weren't good int he first place. I brought the leftovers myself and through half of them out.) Needless to say, I won't be reading recipes on the back of bags any more, and the other half of the bag of beans is still in the freezer. There are exceptions to my rule about not wasting food. This was definitely one of them.
