      I loved the taste of the lemon and olive oil over the beans -- so simple but just enough to give them a little lift. Perfect for a summer meal!

      DH made these beans tonight to accompany a crab-stuffed orange roughy dish. I thought the beans were light and refreshing. The amount of lemon was just perfect--not too overpowering. I would definitely make these again, especially when serving fish. Thanks, Bev!

      This is a five star recipe we learned from a friend...with a slight twist. Sliced fresh garlic gives this such a flavorful punch and added nutrition. My kids all love this dish! We use the juice of a whole lemon and leave out the zest. Yum!
