Green Beans with Creamy Garlic Dressing

From: EatingWell

Inspired by a Lebanese pasta dish, we toss steamed green beans with garlicky yogurt for an easy side dish. Try it with roast lamb.

Servings: 4 servings, about 3/4 cup each
Prep: 25 mins
Total: 25 mins

 by 1 person
1 pound  green beans, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
1 small clove  garlic, minced, or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon  kosher salt
1/2 cup  nonfat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon  chopped fresh parsley, (optional)
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1. Place a medium bowl of ice water near the stove. Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add green beans, cover and cook until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the beans to the ice water to cool. Remove from the ice water with a slotted spoon and let drain on a kitchen towel; blot dry with another towel.
2. If using fresh garlic, mash with salt using the back of a spoon until a paste forms. Whisk the garlic paste (or garlic powder and salt) with yogurt, oil, parsley (if using) and pepper in a large bowl. Add the green beans and toss to coat. Serve cold.
