Ingredients

1 lb green beans, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces1 small clove garlic, minced, or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder½ tsp kosher salt½ cup plain non-fat yogurt1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional) freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

1. Place a medium bowl of ice water near the stove. Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add green beans, cover and cook until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the beans to the ice water to cool. Remove from the ice water with a slotted spoon and let drain on a kitchen towel; blot dry with another towel.

2. If using fresh garlic, mash with salt using the back of a spoon until a paste forms. Whisk the garlic paste (or garlic powder and salt) with yogurt, oil, parsley (if using) and pepper in a large bowl. Add the green beans and toss to coat. Serve cold.
