Units Scale

For the Cucumber

  • 1 large English cucumber, quartyered and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

For the Grilled Green Beans

  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 large bunches green onions, cut into 2 to 3-inch pieces (around 4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

To Finish

  • zest of one lemon
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 chopped fresh dill
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • extra dill and fresh lemons slices for garnish


For the Cucumber

  1. Place the cut cucumber in a collander/strainer over a large bowl. 
  2. Toss with the sugar and salt, then allow to drain for 15 minutes.

For the Green Beans

  1. Preheat grill to medium/high heat. 
  2. Toss the green beans, green onions and oil together in a large bowl.
  3. Line the grill with grill mats if using.
  4. Spread the green beans and onions over the grill mats and grill, tossing occasionally, until the vegetables are charred (12-14 minutes).
  5. Return to the bowl and allow to cool.

To Finish

  1. Add the drained cucumber to the green beans, then toss with the zest, lemon juice and dill.
  2. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Garnish with additional dill and fresh lemon slices.


This recipe calls for grilling the green beans and green onion together.  If you’re unable to grill them, you can theoretically broil them for a few minutes under medium heat, toss them, then broil for another few minutes.  While you won’t get the delicious smokey flavor of the BBQ grill, it’s a good substitute if you can’t fire up the grill.
