Green Bean Yumminess!

How is your vegetable garden this year? Mine is certainly not the best it has ever been, but not the worst either. Some things have done very well (not the tomatoes, sadly). I do have an overabundance of cucumbers (as always), and right now lots of green beans. Just in case you too have lots of beans, I thought you might like to try a new quick and easy recipe. This was available at the Dietician's booth at the local Superstore a few weeks ago. I sampled it and it was sooo good, I knew I'd try it at home. There are no amounts- just do it to suit your own taste.
Cook green beans just until tender crisp. While they are cooking, mix equal parts of fresh squeezed lemon juice with your choice of oil (I used olive oil, she use grapeseed oil). Actually I used slightly more lemon juice than oil. Add some freshly grated lemon zest and fresh chopped herbs - basil, dill and mint. Pour over hot beans, toss and top with some crumbled feta cheese. Yummmmmy!!

Peace,
Linda

Love your autumn header Linda and I have everything I need for this recipe except the beans. The farmers market is today so I'll pick some up and try it.

Oh my gosh, I so wish it would have worked out to put in a garden, next year...or if really lucky this fall since we have two growing seasons. I love fresh green beans with onions, a little chopped up bacon and apple cider vinegar.

That sounds wonderful Linda. I use a similar 'dressing' for my green beans too. We've enjoyed a lot of beans this year but they are from the market...I do not have a garden.
