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!
