Steamed Green Beans with Lemony Yogurt Vinaigrette


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, leave whole 
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, cut into julienne strips 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced 
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free yogurt 
  • 1 tablespoon chives or green onion with green top, finely chopped 
  • 1/4 teaspoon each, salt and black pepper 
  • 1/2 cup canola oil or safflower oil 

Preparation method

Wash green beans and remove the stem end only, leave whole. Steam or blanch green beans for 3 minutes. Toss with julienne red pepper.
Make the vinaigrette in a small bowl by combining parsley, lemon juice, yogurt, and chives. Set bowl on a wet towel to avoid slippage. Add oil in a steady stream, whisking constantly until vinaigrette is blended. Chill.
Toss green beans and red peppers with enough vinaigrette to coat vegetables, about 1/3 cup. Serve warm. Leftover vinaigrette can be used as a salad dressing. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
