This is a great make ahead recipe. And since the flavors get better the longer they sit, this is a fabulous recipe to make in bulk for a potluck.

  • Orange peel from 1/2 a navel orange
  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice

  3. Toss green beens with lemon juice and honey
  4. Sprinkle with orange peel - toss thoroughly and serve either warm or at room temperature
