Green Beans with Garlic Vinaigrette

This easy recipe makes an elegant side dish for company, with hardly any effort at all on your part!

To make the vinaigrette, whisk together 1/4 tsp. grated lemon rind, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice, 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. black pepper, and 1 minced garlic clove; set aside.

Trim the ends from 1 and 1/4 pounds green beans, then cook in boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain, and place in a large bowl. Add the vinaigrette, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons sliced almonds (which you can toast first, if you like), and 1 and 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme.

You'll have 6 servings of 1 cup and 60 calories each.
