  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.

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 al...

sooo very good! I didn't have fresh green beans so I used caned and it was still really really good! Thank you!

This was so easy and I loved it. What a flavorful way to serve a common food!

This was a very easy and tasty way to prepare green beans. We love feta cheese, and having it on this vegetable was new to us. I will definitely make this again!
