- 1 pound green beans (stem ends removed), halved crosswise
- 1/3 cup raisins
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
Set a steamer basket in a large saucepan. Fill with enough water to come just below basket. Bring to a boil; place green beans in basket, and reduce to a simmer. Cover, and steam until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add raisins, and cover; steam until raisins have plumped, 1 minute more.
Transfer green beans and raisins to a medium bowl; add oil and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine.
