This is a great side dish for anyone looking for a way to cut back on the calories during the holidays or anytime of year. It's one I have had in my recipe file for several years and always enjoy making it. It is a compliant Medifast plan recipe as well. The dill gives this recipe a nice aroma and flavor.
Serving Size: 1 cup
Prep Time: 25 minutes
1 pound green beans, trimmed
4 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1. Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add green beans, cover and cook until tender-crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat.
2. Meanwhile, whisk dill, shallot, oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the green beans and toss to coat. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to blend.

This is exceptionally good when served with a grilled salmon fillet!
