This garden fresh simple green beans recipe with lemon and rosemary dressing is a wonderful way to use your garden fresh green beans with a bit of a twist on flavor rather than the traditional olive oil, salt & pepper combo.  I got this recipe from my husband’s uncle who made this for a summer family picnic.  It was unique and delicious and I just had to share it with you!

This is a simple green beans recipe using just 4 ingredients – fresh green beans, lemon, butter, and rosemary!  The combo of lemon and rosemary is delish and I’m sure you will enjoy this twist on a favorite fresh garden veggie this time of year!

Here is a unique dressing you can add to garden fresh steamed green beans as a wonderful side dish to any summer meal!
Ingredients
  • 1 lb green beans (can be frozen)
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 fresh sprig of rosemary leaves or 1 tsp. of dried rosemary
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Place 1lb of trimmed and cleaned green beans in a microwavable safe veggie steamer. Steam for 10 min, until tender.
  2. While the beans are cooking, mix together butter, rosemary, lemon juice, salt & pepper.
  3. Pour the lemon/rosemary dressing over the beans and toss.
  4. Serve right away, or let marinate for 30 min. and re-heat for more potent lemon flavor.

Another twist on this recipe is to substitute the 1 tsp. of rosemary and instead add 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg.  That is also a wonderful and unique flavor that you can try with your fresh green beans!
