  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add green beans, and cook uncovered until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the beans are almost tender, drain and add to the skillet. Continue cooking the green beans in the butter until they are tender, about 2 minutes more.
  2. Season the beans with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Place onto a warmed serving dish, and sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.

N*R I didnt' think I was going to like this, since I hate green beans, but my family likes them, and loves feta. They RAVED over it, so I tried it. Turns out, I only hate BAD green beans! These are GREAT, and how our family will fix green beans from here on out!!!

Interesting to try but I learned feta cheese and green beans are not a good combination for me. (And feta hating Hubs wouldn't even try them)

I really liked this. There were no nasty surprises - clean, fresh flavors and super easy. The cooking times are spot-on. Thanks for the recipe, Carrie! SunnyB N*R

I liked these green beans, but I am not sure about the addition of the butter with the olive oil, so I'd omit that next time. I also would prefer to just drizzle the olive oil over the beans along with the lemon, salt, and pepper instead of finishing them off in another pan to wash. Otherwise, just perfect. Can't wait to eat the leftovers! N*R Go to the Recipe Exchange to find out about N*R

We actually enjoyed these quite a bit. The lemon, feta, and beans were a great flavor combination. We did add a little bit of garlic to the butter olive oil mixture, because my husband said he couldn't live without it. We will be having these again and I can't wait to try them with fresh beans from the garden. N*R

I used frozen green beans, and followed the same directions. In a word: YUM. All five in my family devoured them, even the picky 5 and 2 year olds.
