Green beans are in season right now, and you can get lots of them for great prices. I wanted to make a light and fresh side dish that everyone can enjoy. I’ve found many picky eaters and children like this. It’s also very easy to make and little fuss.
1 pounds green beans, trimmed (both fresh and frozen work!)
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons shallots, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (half of a small lime)
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice (half of a orange)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Bring water to a boil in a large pan and add the green beans with a pinch of salt. Cook the beans for 5 minutes. They’ll still be a bit firm, but fully cooked – then drain.
Combine the shallots, olive oil, lime juice, orange juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and whisk together.
