Grilled Green Beans

Confession: I am obsessed with true crime. I can tell you a lot of details on cases you may have never heard of. I’m just obsessed with the human mind and what drives people to do horrific things.

I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER. But the above is what I look like at dinner parties discussing cold cases in detail.


All that said, I love a good recipe that allows me to return back to my true crime books or documentaries. So I’m an amateur sleuth at both (1) researching cold cases and (2) finding easy/delicious recipes.

Enter grilled green beans. A quick dressing tossed with green beans and red onions get slung on the grill to blister for 10ish minutes and you’re back to your guilty pleasure of choice.
