Three Sisters Salad and Garlicky Green Beans!

July 24, 2019 – Recipe

These are vegetables you might only have tasted cooked—eating them raw is a completely different experience! Try it. Just be sure you let the salad marinate in the fridge for an hour, since that’s going to give the vegetables a lot of flavor.
