    2 lbs fresh green beans
    4 Tbsp lemon juice

    1 tsp crushed red pepper

Directions

clean the beans and cook (or steam) them until they are done but still have some 'bite'. - rinse beans in cold water to stop cooking.
Put beans in a mixing bowl.
combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, crushed pepper and salt (I use a stick blender) - pour over beans.
In a small pan roast sesame seeds and pour over beans.
Gently mix evey few minutes to let the flavors blend.
I like to keep mine at room temperature - it usually does not get very old ... refrigerate later.

  • I brought thisto a bar-b-que at the beach today and the more healthy eaters loved it. I added three large garlic cloves and that turned out to be too much. Our garlic here is really strong since we are one town over from Gilroy - the garlic capital of the world! I can't wait to make it again! - 5/29/10
