Today we are giving flavor to steamed green beans with the delicious Pecan Honey Mustard Dressing. The green beans are steamed to perfection being tender inside and crisp and crunchy on the outside. For a nuttier flavor, I also added chopped roasted pecans on top and a bit of acidity with quick pickled shallots. This traditional Thanksgiving side dish is upgraded with this flavorful Pecan Honey Mustard Dressing.
As you plan your holiday gatherings during this Autumn season, Green Beans with Pecan Honey Mustard Dressing is a fantastic side dish with simple preparation and big flavor.
This Pecan Honey Mustard Dressing is very versatile and can be used as a dressing for steamed or grilled vegetables, and a a salad dressing, a marinate, or a glaze. The perfect dressing for salmon, chicken, turkey or pork.
For this recipe, I used Pecan Honey Mustard which has a wonderful rich pecan flavor combined with a sweet and tangy honey mustard. I know, anything with honey mustard will be absolutely delicious, even by itself. But this one is over the top special. The original green beans recipe I was going to use asked for plain honey mustard. But we already had a jar of Pecan Honey Mustard in the fridge because we love dipping pretzels in this mustard for a tasty snack. Both gluten-free and fat-free, this mustard is the perfect complement for cheeses, like an incredible baked brie. You can also use it to glaze meats and vegetables, as a sauce for pork tenderloin or roast turkey, and drizzle it on squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, and other vegetables.
Last week, I released another Thanksgiving side dish and everyone is loving all the delicious flavors in the Shiitake Cremini White Mushroom Stuffing Recipe. So, check it out!!
For this post, I forgot to photograph the Pecan Honey Mustard Dressing by itself. But that’s okay. You wouldn’t eat it by itself anyway. It always looks good on green beans right? I will be updating this post in the next week or so. Have a lovely Thanksgiving week!
