  • ½ pound green beans
  • ⅓ cup crushed walnuts, toasted

Yogurt Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons cup fresh minced dill
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest (about half a lemon)
  • 1/4 cup plain, whole milk yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch or two of salt


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Snap the ends from the greens beans and drop into the water. Blanch the beans until bright green and just tender, 4 or so minutes. Transfer the green beans to an ice bath and let cool.

  2. Place the green beans in a bowl along with the crushed walnuts. In a separate bowl combine the ingredients for the dressing, whisking to combine. Pour over the green beans and toss until well combined.
