Green Beans with Parsley and Sesame Tahini Sauce
Instead of tossing your green beans with this lemony tahini sauce, drizzle it on top. This way, the sauce won’t dull the beans’ color.
1 lb. green beans, trimmed
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbs. tahini
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 minced medium clove garlic
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbs. coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Bring a medium pot of well-salted water to a boil
over high heat and cook the green beans until crisp-tender, about
3 minutes; drain and cool under cold running water.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and
salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the green
beans with the dressing, sprinkle with the parsley, and serve.
