I steamed the green beans. I didn't have fresh dill so I used 1 tsp of dried dill. I loved it that way. It's so yummy and easy to do. Thanks Jan :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT

We enjoyed the fresh flavors found here. The vinaigrette was such a nice surprise on the slightly crisp green beans. Served with Peppy Paprika Potatoes. I will make this again! Thank you for sharing your recipe! :-)

Green beans are my favorite veggie. I'm typically lazy and boil them with butter. This was a great way to serve them and healthy to boot! The lemon/mustard/dill combination really worked. I would not have thought to use dill on my beans before. I found the vinaigrette light and refreshing. I used a little over a pound of beans and kept the vinaigrette proportions the same. I would have these again. I served with Cedar Planked Salmon With Sweet Mustard Vinaigrette 322424. Thanks! Made for ZWT6.
