Crunchy green beans with radishes

Crunchy green beans with radishes

How about trying this classic French way of preparing beans and radishes, so few ingredients are needed ... it compliments a nice piece of Salmon with Lemon Dijon Basil Sauce, see link below.

Ingredients:
Serves 6

(2g carbs per serving)

350g fine green beans, trimmed
1 bunch radishes, finely sliced into rounds
juice of ½ lemon

seasoning

Method:
Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and cook the green beans for 4-5 mins until tender. Drain and toss with the radishes, drizzle over the oil and lemon juice and season with a little salt and black pepper.


A really nice tasting - and crunchy side dish, original recipe idea here.

It goes well with this Salmon dish. 

Bon Appetit 

All the best Jan

I like this idea. Simple recipes can be so effective and as I grow both beans and radish, it's one to remember for later in the season.
