The great citrus flavor in this side dish really perks up green beans. Try using lemon peel, or a combination of orange and lemon, too.

"Deliciously light and flavorful. Kept the beans al dente and added just a touch more black pepper.... It's a keeper!"

"I was already grilling chicken, so I made the green beans packet style. I used the orange zest, 2t olive oil, plus the juice from half the orange, salt & pepper. I put them on while the grill preheated, and they were just a tiny bit squeaky. Next time I may give them a 1 minute start in the microwave."
