Spring Green Beans

Wow, Spring is here, I have chives in the garden and even some parsley poking its way up.  I seem to be stuck on lemon this week, so decided to toss some lemon zest on the green beans along with the chives and parsley.  What a nice fresh Spring taste!  This couldn’t be easier to make and it really adds a nice twist to the usual green beans.

1 pound green beans, washed and trimmed

2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley

2 tablespoons chopped chives

2 tablespoons butter or olive oil

2 teaspoons lemon zest

Mix lemon, parsley, chives and butter or olive oil with lemon zest.

Cook beans in a large pot of boiling water, uncovered, until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes, then drain. Toss lemon zest, parsley, chives and butter into pan and mix well.  Transfer to bowl and serve!
