spicy garlic dilly beans

These sounds great, but I would leave off the salt.


Do you love green beans? Me too! These are a crunchy fresh green bean flavor bomb of garlicy, vinegary, dilly goodness – yet they are low in fat and salt. Healthy eating does not have to be boring! The first time I made these, I had a handful and my husband ate the rest of A WHOLE POUND of beans, he loved them so much! (A pound of green beans is kiiiind of a lot for one person. LOL. He’s awesome.) The nice thing is, you can make these ahead and/or make a ton, because the longer they sit in the marinade, the more imbued with flavor they become. A great addition to your fresh appetizer, picnic, or tapas table, or to accompany a healthy wrap or sandwich! Or just eat ’em standing up in the kitchen. They’re that good.

Chocolate cake at Chinook's
This was an amazing dessrt, chocolate cake covered with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Wow!

I had salmon, as usual on this trip, and enjoyed it. But the real treat here was the unexpected dessert. I say unexpected because I was trying to maintain my low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar diet on this vacation and was succeeding, mostly, until our night at Chinook’s.
