To really enjoy the fresh flavor of green beans, cook them just until tender (don’t undercook or overcook) and dress them simply with your best olive oil and plenty of sea salt. Then, if you feel like gussying up the dish, add a flavorful extra or two (see the ideas at the end of the recipe).

Yum! Who would've thought such an incredibly simple recipe would rate so high! I added lemon zest, as per the suggestions at the end of the recipe - perfect.
Wonderful!! I added tomatoes and goat cheese. Really creamy and delicious. Everyone enjoyed!!
As the saying goes, sometimes less is more. Such simplicity for such a delicious result. My kids gobbled these up!
