A note about serious food allergies

Feta, that perfectly pungent Greek salad standby, and dill, known for its work with pickles, potato salad, and seafood, form a partnership that's tops, in that it tops the pork chop with aplomb. Its magnificent work here augurs good things in this flavor combo's future: a steak topping, a chicken topping, maybe branching out into risotto. Keep an eye on these two; they're destined for good things. Tip: Line 'em up! The best way to remove the ends of green beans is to line them up evenly, then remove them with one cut.
