Ingredients

  • 1 Pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 Teaspoons minced shallot
  • 1/4 Teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/3 Cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat and prepare an ice bath. Add the green beans and cook just until they turn bright green and are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and cool immediately in the ice bath. Once cooled, remove the beans from water and pat dry.

In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, lemon juice, shallot, and salt. Add the green beans and toss until evenly coated.
