Lemon-Dill Green Beans

These are yummo!  We often roast green beans in the oven with olive oil and sea salt.  I needed a new idea.  I bought fresh dill at the store and was just going to roast them with fresh dill.  I decided to search and found this amazing recipe at Eating Well.  These were so easy and such a nice, side dish ... with our grilled chicken and BLT salad.

Lemon-Dill Green Beans - adapted from Eating Well

1 lb of fresh green beans - trimmed
4 tsp chopped fresh dill
1 Tbsp minced shallots ( I didn't have so I used green onions)
1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp whole grain mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large pan, fitted with a steamer basket.  Add green beans, cover and cook until tender-crisp, about 5 - 7 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Meanwhile..... in a bowl, whisk dill, shallots, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper together.  Toss with the warm green beans.  Let stand about ten minutes before serving, to blend the flavors.
