  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Bring water to boil in a large saucepan; add green beans and cook about 10 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork (beans should retain their bright green color). Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, green onion, dill, salt, and pepper. Drain cooked beans well. Drizzle dill sauce over the beans and toss gently to coat well.
