Green Vegetables with Ginger Dressing

Green Beans

Here's a delicious Green Vegetables with Ginger Dressing dish that you can make ahead easily with the microwave. The fresh ginger in the dressing gives a zesty boost to these old favorites.


2 cups green beans, cut into two inch pieces (fresh or frozen)
2 cups broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)

Sesame-Ginger Dressing:
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce *
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon honey


Whisk dressing ingredients together. Set aside. Microwave fresh green beans with water in covered bowl on high for 2 to 3 minutes.

Remove cover carefully, allowing steam to escape away from you; stir green beans and add fresh broccoli florets. Cover and microwave together on high for 2 minutes. (If using frozen green beans and/or broccoli, follow microwave directions on packaging.)

Drain green beans and broccoli; mix in dressing while still warm. Let vegetables chill in refrigerator until ready to serve (at least 5 to 10 minutes).

*Rice wine vinegar and low sodium soy sauce are vailable in most grocery stores (usually in the Asian dry goods section).
