  • 1 Pound Fresh Green beans trimmed and cut if desired
  • 1/4 Cup Extra-Virgin Olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Tahini
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2-1 Teaspoon Minced garlic worked into a paste
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped parsley


  • Bring a medium pot of well-salted water to a boil over high heat and cook the green beans until crisp-tender, about 3-5 minutes (depending on the bean and how soft you like them). Drain and cool under cold running water. Drain well and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Add green beans to dressing, taste, and add additional tahini, lemon, salt, or pepper as desired.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately or refrigerate up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature before serving.
