Green Beans with Feta & Dill

This recipe makes green beans taste delicious!  If you are looking for a way to entice your kids to eat 'green', or to incorporate some fresh veggies into your Thanksgiving meal, give this a try. 

The recipe is very forgiving, and you can pretty much tailor each of the ingredients to suit your family's tastes. The original recipe is below, and the alterations I like to make are in parenthesis. 

Green Beans and Feta with Dill

2 lbs fresh green beans, trimmed
1/2 cup prepared Good Seasons Italian Dip Mix (1/2 packet of dry, not prepared, mix for bolder flavor)
1/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese (1/2 cup - we like Feta!)
1/4 cup chopped red onion (I omit onion for kids)
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill (1 1/2 tablespoons of dried dill works too)

Cook beans in boiling water for 7 minutes, or until crisp but tender. Drain and rinse in cold water. Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat. 

Thanks to my friend M, and her sister-in-law, for introducing me to this now-family-favorite!
