Green Beans with Sesame Lime Dressing

I brought these to the Titanium rally pot luck and they were a hit with the vegetable lovers. I think they are a great change to plain green beans, and with the dressing is reasonably diet friendly. 1/6th of the dressing recipe is only 38 calories!

  2. I've never oven roasted green beans. Sounds like they would be good. Do you put any oil on them ?

  3. I add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the beans before I roast them.
