Tomato and Green Bean Salad Recipe with a Creamy Vinaigrette

I try to bring something different to every party, barbecue or get together we’re invited to.  It’s fun to test recipes out on people and, since I love to cook, it’s an easy way to show a thank you to whoever invited us.  When my parents invited us over for a BBQ night, I offered to bring the vegetables.  I had a ton of fresh green beans and knew I could think of a fun way to serve them.

Irish Beef Stew Recipe for St. Patrick’s Day

My ethnic background is so mixed and confusing, that I tend to associate myself with Asian cultures since that’s what I grew up in.  But I know I’ve got some Scottish and English blood running through my veins, and I think I’m part Irish as well.  I’ve always felt a longing to visit Ireland, Guinness was the first beer I actually liked, and my iPod is full of Celtic tunes (a lot of which were played at our wedding).  One of my favorite ways to get in touch with my Irish roots, is the best beef stew on the planet.

I know I had a zucchini week while I was on vacation, but that was only 3 of many many recipes I make with zucchini.
