Citrus Green Beans

I don't make fresh green beans often, but I really need to more! They are so delicious and crunchy! This is one of the simplest ways to make green beans with a lot of flavor and little time. I'll definitely make this again!

If you've never made green beans before, here are three great ways to do it!

Total Time: 15 Minutes
Serves 4

  • 3/4 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Bring a pot of water to boil and place green beans in them. Bring to a boil again, and then simmer for about 4 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender.

Transfer beans to a serving bow. Add the oil, peel, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Add more salt and pepper if desired, to taste.
