In a large bowl, combine the remaining oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper; add the green beans and toss to coat. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, remove the green beans and arrange them on top of the lemon slices. Ad the potatoes to the same olive-oil mixture and toss to coat.

    We LOVE this recipe. It is soooo yummy. We replace the green beans with asparagus though and it's so much tastier. - 6/25/13
