Hot sauce is what puts this green bean side dish in the Buffalo category, but there is a lot more going on that lends flavorful complexity—Worcestershire sauce, orange juice, garlic, and basil. This inspired vegetable side dish is a terrific make-ahead side recipe. For maximum flavor, allow the chilled green beans to come up to room temperature before serving. Try this recipe with sugar snap peas or snow peas too.
