Loved the simplicity of this. I'm sure that the results would have been much better with fresh beans but it still greatly improved the frozen ones that I used. I did steam then a bit longer because I started with the frozen and also DH wants his veggies past the "Al Dente" stage (but I refuse to turn them in to the mush he would really like!). I'm a real fan of the lemon/salt combo and that's all I ever use as salad dressing so this had to be a winner. It will be a great side for almost anything!

I made this with our New Year's Day dinner and it was a great side dish. I usually make green beans with almonds, but the pine nuts were a nice change! A great, good-for-you dish. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious, quick and easy. The beans were washed, microwaved until crisp tender then drained. The beans were then tossed with the remaining ingredients. I really like that they are so full of flavor without any added fat. Something I will make again.
