"This super-easy side dish utilizes the bounty of late summer and is the perfect companion to whatever you are grilling - in fact, the stove can be turned on while the meat is resting from the grill. The sweet acidity of the berries balances the entire meal, and the fresh oregano brings out the best of both the berries and the beans. It's a beautiful, unusual side dish that leaves guests, and even finicky family, raving." — Menealeous' Daughter

fresh green beans, cut into 2 inch pieces
chopped fresh oregano
fresh, ripe blackberries, at room temperature
salt and pepper to taste
Surprisingly delicious! It's a wonderful blend of the saltiness of the seasonings, sweetness of the berry juices, and tartness of the whole berries. I will definitely make it again. Thanks!
My family did not like all of the oregano and the mixture of the blackberries. Also, we had to steam longer than recipe called for. Sounded like it could have been a great recipe, but we will not be making this again.
These were simple enough to make. This is an interesting combination of flavors. I used wild blackberries. I really ended up eating around the berries which weren't all that sweet. The beans were very tasty, though.
This was a great twist for fresh green beans. Thank you.
This was a huge hit - the combination of flavors was unexpected.
Just made this dish and WOW!! I would never have dreamed of this combo. I only had raspberries which probably made it a little sweeter. I forgot to add the celery powder, used just a dash of onion powder and added fresh pressed garlic which I see now isn't even in the recipe, and added butter. Regardless of changes it was simply divine!
