Green Beans have to be the easiest vegetable to work with.  They make a cooks life easy if she is cooking for a crowd.  I always go for the french green beans because I think they cook up tender and have a softer flavor.  After a quick blanch you can store these beans in the refrigerator covered over night to pull out and dress before serving.  Serving them chilled helps keep their crispness.  I served these at last weekends dinner party, using 5 pounds – there was none left.Grate lemon and squeeze juice to measure 1 1/2 tablespoons.
This recipe works for all specific diets, including Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan, and Paleo.
