Dill green beans

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: approximately 10 minutes

Dill green beans

6 cups water
1 package (14 ounces) frozen whole green beans, thawed
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

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.
