These Green Beans Caesar are a delicious side dish and a change of pace from the usual steamed beans. Goes with anything from chicken to pork to fish.

What’s your go-to side dish for almost any meal? If you’re like 99% of the people I know, it’s green beans. They go with almost anything and when I just can’t think of something to prep along with dinner, I always know I can whip up some green beans. Yep, good old green beans. Boring old green beans. I cook them until I think, “I can’t eat another green bean!”

That’s why I’m always looking for more interesting ways to serve them. Sure, they’re delicious steamed with a bit of salt and butter added or cooked the old-fashioned southern way seasoned with a ham hock, but today I have something totally different – Green Beans Caesar.

I’ve tossed cooked green beans with a garlic vinaigrette and topped them with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Pop the dish in the oven for a while and then serve. I could honestly make my whole dinner of just these beans and some bread. So good and so different. A great change of pace from the usual. Hope you enjoy them!

  1. I am not a big fan of green beans. But, this actually sounds amazing. I am going to try this very soon. Going to Farmer’s Market to buy some fresh beans.

  2. A resounding Yes! Two of my favorite things combined. Ceasar salad dressing and fresh green beans. I really miss growing my own green beans this year. You’d better believe I won’t miss it next year!

    1. I haven’t planted my own in a long, long time Ginny. I used to can them every year, but where we live now they’d just be fodder for the deer!

  3. What a great idea – the ‘caesar’ flavors must be fantastic with the green beans! I’m definitely making this recipe very soon…

  4. I’m literally up to my eyeballs with fresh green beans from my backyard vegetable patch, so this recipe couldn’t come at a better time… I was starting to run out of ideas to use them all up! :)

  5. I agree, green beans go with pretty much anything. This is such a fun way to gussy them up a bit – love the flavors in a caesar!

  6. Ditto that. Looking forward to one more quick crop of fresh beans from our garden soon and will try this. Thank you for your wonderful blog :)
