Grilled Green Beans

With all these great grilled dishes you need a great grilled "side dish"!

Something quick and tasty will do!

I've made this side dish a couple of times lately and they turned out really well.  They are a good compliment to grilled food.

Grilled green beans!  They are easy to do, just make sure to grill the beans crosswise on the grates so they won't fall through.  Grilling them on the stove in a grill pan works well too.

You can use either haricot verts or some nice string beans.  Both work well.  I used haricot verts in two dishes recently cause our string beans were looking a little puny.  As you can see I made them with my Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu... (make sure to drizzle some of the vinaigrette from the chicken on this version)

And my Grilled Turkey with Balsamic BBQ Sauce (Thanksgiving in August meal!)

So if you love green beans, these will float your boat!  Grab your beans and get grilling!
