Greek Green Beans - WLS Side Dishes

Finding an exciting vegetable side dish is always a challenge. And where I live, finding a vegetable dish that isn’t made with cream or (okay…AND) butter is quite unlikely.

So when your favorite dietitian tells you to focus on lean meats and vegetables, you might be stumped on what to do outside of a can of green beans or an incredibly boring bag of salad.

If you like the salty Mediterranean type flavors that come with feta and olives, you’ll really appreciate this. But…be sure to drink plenty of water so you don’t puff up like a balloon.
