Directions

  1. Toss green beans in boiling water for 3-4 minutes, until bright green and still crunchy.
  2. Drain and "shock" in ice water to stop cooking.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Olive oil cooking spray works just as well, if you want to shave a few calories.
  4. Add beans and saute for 1-2 minutes, until heated through. It's okay if some of the beans brown up a bit.
  5. Transfer to serving dish.
  6. Squeeze lemon halves over the beans and toss to coat.
  7. Add salt to taste. (I omit this step).
