Green beans are so easy to make, no joke. I was looking for a vegetable side that wasn't another lettuce salad and all I had to do was throw the green beans in boiling water for a few minutes, drain, run under cold water (I have seen enough cooking shows to know that you're supposed to "shock" them in an ice bath, but honestly) and throw back in the pot with butter, fresh dill, salt and pepper. And you're done! My favorite part of making green beans is that they require no prep aside from rinsing; yes, you can trim the tips, but I don't find it necessary.
