The main ingredients of the appetizer are string beans and mushrooms. Of course, the salad can be prepared with wax yellow beans exactly in the same way.
You can use both canned and fresh green beans, on your desire. The taste of the salad is pretty the same, with a plus of vitamins for the fresh version, of course.
However, the fresh carrots give enough freshness and healthiness to the salad, so using frozen string beans is a good choice when you want to save time and spend less time in the kitchen.
I like garlic flavor very much, so I use more of it in this salad appetizer. Nevertheless, you can use garlic on your taste, but I recommend a minimum of 2-3 garlic cloves to enjoy a spicy appetizer.
Regarding the mustard, you can use both sweet and spicy versions, as you like. Personally, I like to use spicy mustard that I combine with a bit of sugar to confer a spicy-sweet taste to the salad.
A very important thing that I underline is to drain the water VERY WELL from both string beans and mushrooms. Basically, you have to remove water completely from vegetables. If you don’t do so, your salad will have a watery texture and an unpleasant taste.
Finally, you can replace the dill with other fresh aromatic plants such as parsley or coriander if you like those flavors more than dill.
