  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime or possibly lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. minced fresh mint
  • 1 sm. garlic clove, very finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Freshly grnd black pepper
  • 1/3 c. plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tomato, cut into wedges


  1. Pour sufficient water into a large saucepan to fill it about 1 inch deep. Set a vegetable steamer in the pan and bring the water to a boil. Add in the beans, cover the pan tightly, and steam the beans till they are tender, about 6 min. Remove the beans from the pan, and refresh them under cool running water to arrest their cooking and preserve their color. When the beans are cold, drain them thoroughly and place them in a bowl. Sprinkle the salt over the beans and toss well.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the dry mustard and the lime or possibly lemon juice till a smooth paste is formed. Add in the mint, garlic, sugar, pepper and yogurt, and blend well. Add in the beans and toss to coat them. Chill for at least 30 min. At serving time, garnish with the tomato wedges.
