Lemony Green Beans have lemon juice and lemon zest, and these are one of my favorite green bean recipes that I’ve made many times. And these tasty green beans are a perfect quick and easy side dish for a special meal!
If you’re someone who likes those lovely thin green beans you can get almost all year now, I enthusiastically recommend you try this recipe for Lemony Green Beans that literally takes minutes to get on the table. I know green beans are also a beloved garden vegetable, but I didn’t have garden beans when I first tried the recipe, and I made it three times with the French green beans that come from Costco. And trust me when I say this recipe is ridiculously easy but so, so good!
In fact, the first time I made Lemony Green Beans, I ended up eating a whole pound of green beans myself and calling it lunch! And through the years I’ve made these beans often when I needed a side dish for a special dinner. Beloved recipes like this one that I’ve made over and over are exactly what I love to remind you about for my Friday Favorites posts, so today I’m reminding you about this favorite way to cook green beans and urging you to make it soon! And check the list in the post for more holiday-worthy ideas for green beans!
