Green Beans with a Lemon Dill Vinaigrette

What a fantastic way to enjoy charred green beans as the perfect side dish.

These grilled beans are easy and delicious and will be a hit with your family. You can easily substitute a skillet on your stovetop to make this tasty spin on “steamed” green beans all year round.

Top tips for prepping ahead: (on your food prep day or the night before)

Pre-chopping, cutting or cooking ingredients really helps to reduce stress and simplify dinner on busy weeknights. We know, we know, we’re always talking about meal prep, but it truly is the holy grail to healthy eating!

  • Clean and trim green beans
  • Chop garlic (if you’re using fresh)

Some ways to “reinvent” your leftover green beans:

  • Chicken Wrap: In a wrap, combine chicken, leftover green beans (chopped), Muenster cheese and greens. Grill on both sides or heat in the toaster oven and serve.
  • Buddha bowls: In a bowl combine chopped green beans, a small amount of wilted spinach, protein of choice, roasted sweet potato home fries, and avocado.
  • Eggs or an Omelet: Add leftover green beans to eggs or an omelet for an easy, yet amazing breakfast.
  • Cold, on top of a salad
