Are green beans one of your favorites of the summer harvest?  Then check out this collection of 22 ways to enjoy fresh green beans!

This time of year, green beans are abundantly growing in the garden.  And they seem to be the crop that keeps on giving, don't they? ... Kind of like the Energizer Bunny of the garden.
