  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 15 slices white bread
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1 jar (7-1/4 ounces) roasted sweet red peppers, well drained
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed minced fresh parsley


  • Place green beans in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil; cook, uncovered, for 6-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse in cold water. Pat dry with paper towels. Place the beans in a large resealable plastic bag; add salad dressing. Seal bag and toss to coat; refrigerate overnight.
  • Trim crusts from bread. With a rolling pin, flatten each slice slightly. Combine mayonnaise and mustard; spread about 1 teaspoon on each slice of bread.
  • Cut roasted peppers into 1/2-in. slices. Drain and discard marinade. Place three green beans and two pepper slices on each slice of bread. Roll up from a long side and secure with a toothpick. Brush with butter; roll in parsley. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Just before serving, discard toothpicks and cut each roll into three pieces.
