A great foil for the richer dishes of the Thanksgiving table, these brightly flavored beans can be served warm or cold as a salad. With minty yogurt sauce on the side for dipping, they make a delicious, modern replacement for your traditional green bean casserole.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add beans and return to a boil, then cook until beans are crisp-tender and a consistent color throughout, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain; run under cold water to stop cooking. Pat completely dry. Beans can be made ahead to this point and refrigerated in an airtight container up to 2 days.

  • Drizzle beans with oil; toss to coat. Stir together 2 teaspoons salt, lemon zest, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Sprinkle over beans. Serve, with yogurt sauce.
