Green Beans with Lemon & Dill

This hardly seems like a recipe, honestly. I made this on New Year’s Eve at my mother’s house because she had some fresh green beans around.

1 lb. green beans, ends trimmed
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 T. fresh dill, minced
1/2 T. butter
1/2 T olive oil
1 T. water
salt and pepper

Steam the beans over boiling salted water for 10 minutes, or boil in salted water for 6 minutes. Drain. Place the beans in a serving bowl and add the butter, covering the butter with beans to encourage it to melt. Add the remainder of the ingredients and toss together. I use tongs with green beans. It’s easier. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
