A note about serious food allergies

Way back when, a thousand or so years ago, Europeans believed that dill warded away witches and defended against spells. That was a long time ago; no need to resort to hocus-pocus to enjoy the aromatic flavor of dill. The herb is paired, as it so often is, with salmon; specifically a stupendous dill crema. This dish is delightful, and as a bonus, it'll keep you from being turned into a toad! What, we said no need to resort to hocus-pocus. We just want to. 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.

    Start the Green Beans
