Green Beans With Shallots & Dill

Recipe by Debster

Found this tasty green bean dish in Victoria magazine. So good with fresh beans and dill from the garden.

Top Review by Kitchenette

Outstanding! Despite the extra step of plunging the beans in cold water, this was quick and easy to make, and the lemony-dill flavor of the beans was delicious. I'll be making this over and over again. I substituted butter for half of the olive oil and green onions for the shallots.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blanch the green beans in boiling salted water for 6 to 7 minutes, or until just tender.
  2. Drain and transfer to a bowl of ice water to set the color.
  3. Drain and pat dry.
  4. Transfer to a plastic storage bag& chill.

  7. Add the dill, lemon peel, and lemon juice.
  8. Toss to coat, and transfer to a serving dish.
