Fresh green beans roasted with some bacon until they are caramelized and tender. Toss them with a tangy dill vinaigrette for an easy side dish.



Green Beans

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, stems removed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces


  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pinch of black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread the green beans on a baking sheet and drizzle the olive oil over the top. Gently toss the beans to coat them with the olive oil. Place the bacon pieces on the green beans. Roast the green beans for 15 minutes. Stir them around the pan and roast them for another 10 minutes.
  2. While the green beans roast, make the dressing. Whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, dill, mustard, salt, and pepper until combined. When the beans are done roasting season them with a couple pinches of salt. Drizzle the dressing over the top of the beans and, using tongs, gently toss them to coat them in the dressing.
