Final Notes for the Cold Green Bean Salad with Mayonnaise
➡️ This cold green bean salad is one of my favorite salads appetizers and cold appetizers. So, I prepare it as many times as I have an opportunity. Since it can be served all throughout the year, I make this salad with fresh green beans, frozen green beans, or canned green beans, depending on which of them I have at hand. The result is the same and the salad is delicious any time I serve it!
➡️ Cold green bean salad can be prepared both with French green beans and yellow beans. I often use fresh yellow beans during summer because this variety seems more nourishing than string green beans. Plus, yellow beans are abundant in the region where I live. However, during winter, I use mostly canned green beans to make this salad appetizer that often turns into a side dish along with pork roast.
➡️ As you probably noted in the video, I’ve put a lot of garlic in this green bean salad because I simply love the combination of mayonnaise sauce, carrots, and green beans with a strong garlic aroma. Of course, you can use less garlic according to your taste.
➡️ If you want to make a lighter version of this salad appetizer, you might replace mayonnaise and sour cream with yogurt. However, fresh bean salad with yogurt has to be served shortly after you prepare it and can’t be stored like the version with mayonnaise.
➡️ Green bean salad with mayonnaise can be served along with other cold appetizers or can be used for other more complex appetizers such as cold stuffed tomatoes or cold stuffed bell peppers.
➡️ A fresh bean salad appetizer is also a great choice for a tasty and quick breakfast – you can serve it as a sandwich or an open sandwich. Cold green bean salad with mayonnaise can be served also as a side dish on torrid summer days. Many times, I like to eat grilled chicken with cold green bean salad to enjoy a tasty and hearty dinner without feeling bloated.
