I noticed this recipe just before I put a pound of green beans (topped with a few slices of bacon) into the microwave. So in the few minutes it took for the beans to cook, I whipped up the garlic-lemon dressing. What a delicious result. Even hubby -- who rarely gives generous praise -- yummed-yummed his way through this great dish. Thanks for posting.

We loved this quick and easy way to fix green beans! While the beans steamed, I quickly whipped up the vinaigrette...viola, it was done! I did add some dried basil, minced onion and a pinch of sugar to cut the tart of the lemon to the vinaigrette. This was delicious warm and we'll be eating the leftovers cold for lunch today. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

A perfect make ahead dish that I served on Thanksgiving. I steamed the greens, mixed with the dressing and warmed it in a stove top pan when ready to serve, although it be would be also great as a cold/room temperature salad. Thank you.

Very refreshing way to eat green beans! I minced 4 cloves of garlic instead of pressing them. Will be making this one again! Thanks!
