A great side dish that kids love, and one that they can easily help prepare. I served these alongside a roast chicken.
Lemon-Lime Green Beans
- 1 lb of fresh green beans, ends snapped off*
- 1/4 of a fresh lemon*
- 1/4 of a fresh lime*
- 1/2 of a tablespoon of butter
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and toss in green beans. Boil for just one or two minutes, watching it and removing from heat and draining as soon as they start to turn bright green.
Return the quick-cooked green beans to the empty pot and stir in the butter and salt. Squeeze the lemon and lime onto the beans and stir well to coat, until the butter is completely melted.
