Green Beans


Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare salsa: Combine watermelon, radishes, jalapeño, shallot, lime zest and juice in a medium bowl. Gently toss. Season with salt and pepper; toss again. Set aside.

  • To prepare green beans: Place a grill basket on a grill; preheat to medium-high. (Alternatively, preheat a grill pan over high heat.)

  • Combine beans, oil, cumin and coriander in a large bowl; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper; toss again. Grill the beans in the basket (or grill pan), stirring once halfway through, until just tender and evenly charred, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Transfer the beans to a serving platter and top with the salsa. Serve immediately.
