A Summer Salad: Creamy Dill Green Bean Salad
Corn and green beans remind me of being a kid in summertime. My parents didn't have us help much with cooking, I actually don't think we did any, but we helped shuck corn and snap the ends off of green beans. That was about the extent of the chores we did. Lucky, I know.
This recipe will definitely be favorite for my mom who loves dill and anything easy to cook on a weeknight. Hope you guys enjoy it too!
