  • 1
    Heat 1 inch water (salted if desired) to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Add green beans. Boil uncovered 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Rinse in cold water until chilled; drain.
  • 2
    Place radishes and parsley in blender. Cover and blend on high about 20 seconds, stopping blender frequently to scrape sides, until finely chopped.
  • 3
    Melt butter in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook radish mixture, salt and mustard seed in butter about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot. Toss with green beans and lime juice.

Expert Tips

Two 10-ounce packages of frozen cut green beans can be substituted for the fresh green beans. Cook and drain as directed on package.

Warmed leftover green beans are especially tasty wrapped up in flour tortillas.
