I was searching through my favorite sites, Tastespotting and Foodgawker, for a side dish idea. I saw this amazing looking green bean side dish and knew it would be perfect to serve with my razor clams (recipe to come). I adapted the recipe a little to suit our tastes and we all LOVED it. Both of my kids asked for seconds and gobbled every last bite. I loved the dill flavor and thought it paired nicely with the razor clams and rice. I look forward to making this again – soon.
Green Beans with Feta and Dill:
- 1 lb. fresh green beans
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon minced shallot
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
- 1/4 small red onions, sliced thinly
- Feta cheese, crumbled
- 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
Trim the ends of the green beans, if desired. Place in a pot of boiling water for 3-4 minutes, I like mine tender but still crisp. Drain and place in ice cold water to stop them from cooking and to keep them bright green. Drain and place in a bowl. Add the sliced onion, fresh dill and salad dressing to taste. Toss until evenly coated. Place in a serving dish and sprinkle the top with feta cheese. Serve and enjoy.
