In Florida the weather is lovely year round. Even on its coldest days it’s still a beautiful day to enjoy the outdoors. That’s when the grill comes in handy. Everyone gather around the patio table while the food is cooking away. The girls giggle, the dog goes crazy with the dog, and my husband and I move back and forth to finish dinner. One of my favorite things to do on the grill is fresh green beans. I love grill marks on my veggies. Are you with me on this?
When the outdoors are not in our favor because it’s raining we use an indoor grill and call it a day. We have one we got years ago and it’s our go to grill option. I want to share with you this grilled green bean recipe with a nice lime cilantro-habanero taste. It’s a sauce from Fire Fruits Artisanal Hot Sauce, you can find it at your local Publix or online. Trust me, you want this sauce and while you’re there you can check out other varieties they offer. I still have to try them all.
