Tonight we are bee-bopping over to our friend's place for dinner so I thought I would throw up a simple side dish that can also be used to make an interesting salad.

Last summer we had just been to the farmer's market and snagged some gorgeous green and yellow string beans. I usually like to salt my green beans but my sister was coming over for dinner the same evening and she was on a no sodium diet. I checked out the internet and read that green beans paired well with dill and rosemary. So Zo and I hopped in the car headed to the store to pick up some fresh rosemary and dill. We were not sure how much to use of each so we went with a tbsp of each and what do you know these green beans were amazing.

1/2 lbs Yellow string beans (washed with ends removed)
1/2 lbs Green string beans (washed with ends removed)
1 tbsp fresh rosemary (diced)
1 tbsp fresh dill (diced)
3 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic (diced)

In a large frying pan warm olive oil over medium-high heat. Mix in beans to get covered in oil, add garlic and cook 5 minutes covered, stirring frequently. Add seasonings and cook uncovered for an additional 3 to five minutes, stirring frequently. Serve hot.

Additional uses for this recipe:
1. Mix these green beans with a 1/2 cup chopped leaks and 1 cup chopped vine tomatoes with a little fresh crack pepper for an interesting cold salad. This can be easily brought along to a picnic.
