"We’ll often make this salad with leftover cooked corn. And if we have a little summer squash or fresh peas or favas on hand, we’ll cook them up and add them. You needn’t worry if you have a little more of one ingredient or a little less of another — this salad isn’t finicky. One more thing about this salad is that from time to time we’ll toss in (at the end) some pitted oil-cured olives and small chunks of salty cheese like feta or ricotta salata. Add those, and you’ve got a meal." Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton

Sichuan Dry-Fried String Bean
String beans are loved by many people because they are healthy and delicious.  Like all legumes string beans are rich in protein and fiber and low in fat. String beans can be prepared in many different ways but for me there is no better string bean dish than the popular Sichuan dish called Dry-Fried String Beans. Known for its great flavor and outstanding texture, Dry-Fried String Beans is arguably one of most well known Chinese string bean dishes served in virtually every Chinese restaurants ranging from takeout joints to high end places. Traditionally, the string beans are first deep fried to seal the natural flavor. Then they are cooked using a special technique called dry-frying – a frying technical that involves high heat, and little to no liquid. The technique is the key behind that famous slightly crunch outside but soft inside texture. Follow this recipe to create your own authentic Dry-Fried String Beans.

Loaded with fresh herbs, this is a refreshing summer salad when you've overdone the tomato and mozzarella thing. Adding day-old chunks of toasted bread brushed with olive oil makes it a great version of panzanella.

That tangy sauce you get to dunk your fries and chicken nuggets into has to be great with other things besides fried foods, right? We thought so, and so we tossed it with some string beans and added an extra crunch with another fast-food favorite, Burger King Onion Rings.
