Green Beans with Creamy Garlic Dressing

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/green_beans_with_creamy_garlic_dressing.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2009

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

4 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  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.
