Cold Marinated String Beans & Scapes

Cold Marinated String Beans & ScapesPick-your-own string beans are a sure sign that summer has arrived at Blooming Glen!  Although we often don’t think about these beans as being particularly healthful, they actually have quite an antioxidant profile, which helps fight off the free radical damage that can cause illness, aging, cancers, and inflammation.  They also have lots of fiber and offer a nice bit of plant-based protein. Given the heat as of late, Mikaela put together an easy-to-prepare, cool dish for the Blooming Glen Farm blog: Read more about string bean nutrition and get the recipe for Cold Marinated String Beans and Scapes by clicking here!
