EASY GREEN BEAN SALAD

1 lb fresh green beans, whole
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Lettuce leaves, if desired
Shredded Mexican Blend cheese for garnish, if desired

In a saucepan with a small amount of water to steam, place the green beans and salt. Cover and cook 7 to 8 minutes until crisp tender. Immediately drain and rinse in cold water. Drain from cold water once cooled.

In a bowl large enough to toss the green beans, combine he oil, lemon juice, green onions, pepper and paprika. When well combined, add the green beans and toss to coat well. Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves, if desired. Sprinkle with the cheese for color and flavor, if desired.

Yield: 6 servings
