    Very good. Only change was to use sour cream instead of creme fraiche. Great flavor and so simple to prepare. Definitely a keeper. Served with B.A. Halibut Fish Sticks, with CL Bacon-Tomato Butter and roasted fingerling potatoes.

    After reading the reviews, I was excited to try this. I even bought the creme fraiche. I made it exactly as written, but was disappointed. It was extremely bland. I think if I made it again, I would at least double the mustard.

    Excellent! Served with Herb & Lemon Roasted Striped Bass (Aug 2010), which was outstanding. I prepped everything earlier in the day, then threw it all together 15 minutes before serving.

    I, too used sour cream, which I had on hand, and agree that it was a keeper. I bought the beans at the farmer's market and bought 2 varieties and mixed them together. Yum.

    Not bad. I can't say it's blindingly brilliant, but it's fairly quick and easy and makes an acceptable side dish. I used crema mexicana because there was no creme fraiche in two stores. Seems like a fine sub. Basically this comes out like a green bean salad. I thought it was a decent side for a summer BBQ plate featuring grilled pork tenderloin, corn on the cob, and corn muffins.
