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

Good, but wrong proportions

I loved the yogurt sauce this creates, and I use this ratio for all my garlic-yogurt creations. Great for veggie dipping sauce. I should have known this- and I'm sure many of you do- but you should add yogurt to beans gradually to desired consistency. I added it all at once and wow.. way too much. Just be careful. Great recipe! Start slow with the garlic if you don't like very much.

powerful flavor, unique

My husband didn't like it, but I thought it was ok. I think it was the yogurt. It did have a nice garlic flavor though that wasn't over-powering.

Outstanding

This is an old recipe that is deceptively simple, but the taste delivers a great surprise. It isn't necessary to mortar the garlic and salt, although that is the correct way to do it. If you crush the garlic and add the salt it will still turn out well (I have mede it both ways.) You might hesitate to use that amount of salt. Don't. It's all about balance and this is as perfect as they come. Enjoy.

Quick, Delicious
