    Simple and tasty. I do think you need to adjust times for your steamer though. My rice/veggie steamer took closer to 12 minutes.

    So simple and yet so good. You can use steam in bag fresh green beans and just under do them by a couple minutes. I used fresh and cooked the in a hot pan with 1/2 cup water let to evaporate and then some sauteeing. But the sauce! Almost wanted to skip my grilled steak and just eat the green beans. I let people add sauce to their own servings so had leftover sauce. Also good on a crisp romaine salad.

    This was an excellent dressing for cooked green beans. I just bring some water to a boil, add my beans and cover. Cook only 3 min and drain. Add rest of ingredients. The green beans are nice and crisp which is the way we like to eat them. Already made it again, need to buy more green beans!

    We made the first variation...roasted with pesto. A huge hit at Easter. Pretty easy and very flavorful. I could have roasted them a little longer, but that might just have been the oven we used.

    This recipe is as good as it easy. The freshness of the vinaigrette is perfect with beans from the garden. Even our seven year-old, who isn't a green bean fan, ate her serving. You can read my full review at Taking On Magazines:
