Charred beans pair with a mustard-mayonnaise dipping sauce for a fireside appetizer that couldn’t be easier.
What to buy: Any bean with an edible shell, such as romano or yellow wax beans, will substitute beautifully in this recipe.
Cajun seasoning can be found in most grocery stores, or you can make your own.
Game plan: Make the dipping sauce the day before you go camping and bring it along. You might want to wash the green beans the day before too, though there’s no need to remove the stems.
This recipe can also be made indoors. Heat the broiler and place the beans on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Place under the broiler, occasionally turning the baking sheet, until the beans are blistered and charred, about 5 minutes. And, of course, you can just use regular salt and freshly ground black pepper in place of the chef’s mix listed in the ingredients.
