Simple Sauteed Strings Beans with Swiss Chard

Dinner, Side Dishes | July 20, 2010 | By

Now that I’m finally harvesting my small garden plot, string beans and swiss chard are making a regular appearance at the dinner table.  I saute both in minced garlic and a little kosher salt.  No recipe needed.  Just toss all ingredients in a little olive oil and saute for a couple of minutes.

These images were really fun to shoot, especially because I was really happy with the close up shot of the beans.  I spent a good 5 minutes styling the beans so that they looked effortlessly tossed into the wooden bowl.
