Thai Peanut Green Bean Salad with Walla Walla Sweets

This is what you get when there is a sale on green beans.

Lots of green beans. Full disclosure, there was also a sale on this:

And this:

But unfortunately not this:

But I needed it, so I bought it anyway. My name is Holley and I’m addicted to grocery shopping.

This is what you get when you live with grandpa, lover of Walla Walla sweet onions:

The man wants onions on everything. And I made him a potato salad with tons of onions and Matty B told me that when he was dishing up leftovers for grandpa, he was instructed to chop up more onion, but not to tell me because it might hurt my feelings. P.S. Mom, grandpa doesn’t like soft tacos, but he told me not to tell you cause it might hurt your feelings. FYI.

This is what you get when you ask Miss Rae to smile for a picture:

Interestingly enough, this is the same face grandpa gets when he doesn’t get enough onion in his potato salad.

This is what happens when you ask me to bring a salad to a picnic:

It’s a cheating recipe, really, because I’ve already posted the thai peanut dressing recipe and now I’m just telling you to put this same vegan dressing on different ingredients. My only excuse is that my wrist is so tired from chopping onions that I don’t have the energy to give you a new recipe.

But this is just another example of exactly what I want my recipes to be about: versatility. Don’t have lettuce? Use green beans? None of this? What about roasted cauliflower? Maybe some julienned zucchini “noodles”?

Because certainly your life is similar to mine: bedtime stories and dishes and meetings and juice boxes and maybe, if you’re lucky, a hot shower. You don’t need to run out to the store for special ingredients. And if it’s on sale, you’re gonna buy it and make it work.

This is what you get when you make a quick vegan salad and then take the time to wait long enough:

A sweet little smile:)
