Steamed Green Beans with Tomato-Garlic Vinaigrette

Steamed Green Beans with Tomato-Garlic Vinaigrette

The heady, tangy vinaigrette complements the crisp, sweet green beans. Use a garlic press, if you have one, to crush the garlic for this summery dressing; a press crushes garlic into small pieces, encouraging good-for-you compounds to develop.
