Yellow Beans Recipe

This quick recipe is perfect in warmer seasons and what I love about it is that it can be served both warm or cold. I’m not a big fan of eating hot foods on hot days and these light yellow beans recipe tastes so refreshing when served right out of the refrigerator! It’s also pretty versatile as more ingredients can be added, as well as more herbs and spices if you love spicy food.

I don’t feel like eating heavy when the weather is too much to bear and I also seem to get full easier. So instead of cooking big pots of food I make small dishes. As much as I love cooking and baking, I need quick recipes, I don’t have all the time in the world to spend in the kitchen. Also keeping the stove on for too long drives me crazy these days! This yellow beans salad delivers exactly what I need, ready in about 20 minutes and it’s so flavorful, nutritious and healthy.

Need more side dish ideas?

Have you ever wondered how to cook yellow beans perfectly? It seems that people cook them so many different ways but my favorite is by far this simple yellow beans dish. Although my mom used to cook this recipe very often during my childhood years, I completely forgot about it until one day when I run out of recipe ideas. I went to the market looking for “something” without having any clue on what that “something” was. An old lady practically begged me to buy these and the recipe immediately crossed my mind. So I thanked her and told her she’s a blessing, she’s saved me precious time I couldn’t afford to waste on looking for inspiration.

A simple summer recipe, this yellow wax beans recipe is very tasty especially when the yellow beans are freshly picked from the garden. It can also be a delicious side dish for a juicy steak or chicken thighs if you need a more consistent meal. I know my husband would agree! We love pairing these yellow beans with this baked honey mustard fish recipe!

  1. I miss having a garden I used to grow yellow, purple & green beans. Looks yummy! Pinned & shared. Thanks for joining the Inspiration Spotlight Party. Hope to see you again soon.

  2. I love dill with my beans (yellow or green) and garlic too! Sometimes I top it with a dollop of sour cream :) Thank you so much for sharing your post at Thursday Favorite Things!

  3. I love yellow beans but can’t always find them! When the local farmers come into town they usually have some but for a very short amount of time. My kids think they look funny since they are not green. LOL!
