Ingredients

  • 1 Pound green beans, trimmed
  • 2 Ounces crumbled fresh goat cheese
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons apple juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/3 Cup chopped dill
  • 3/4 Cups fresh corn (from 1 ear corn)
  • 1 large tomato, diced

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat and set up an ice bath. Add the green beans and cook just until they turn bright green and are barely tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and cool in the ice bath. Drain and pat dry.

To make the dressing, whisk together the goat cheese, lemon zest and juice, apple juice, garlic, and pepper in a small bowl. Toss the green beans with half of the dressing and half of the dill and spread on a platter. Top with the corn and tomato, drizzle with the remaining dressing, and top with the remaining dill.
