An easy way to turn up and flavor your fresh green beans. 


  • 32 oz of green beans
  • ¼ cup of the green goddess dressing or marinade of your choice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil
  2. Cut off the ends of your green beans to remove any of the stem.
  3. Boil your green beans for 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Remove them and immediately place them into an ice bath to stop the cooking. 
  5. Reheat your green beans (microwave is totally fine) for 1 minute. 
  6. Season with salt, pepper, and drizzle with your favorite green goddess dressing. 
  7. Optional: You can also add a sprinkle of fried onions to the top for the crunch factor
  8. Enjoy!


This recipe uses fresh green beans. They’re going to be crunchy and snappy. I recommend fresh – not canned or frozen – for this recipe.
