5 from 10 reviews


Pecan Honey Mustard Dressing is very versatile and can be used as a marinade, salad dressing, or glaze for grilled veggies. This recipe is straightforward, quick to prepare, and you only need three ingredients. This time we will be using this dressing in a traditional Thanksgiving dinner side dish of steamed green beans, and topping with chopped pecans and quick pickled shallots. These green beans have been steamed for 6 or 8 minutes for a perfect tender texture with still a bit of crispy and crunchy.
