• 225 g trimmed fine green beans
  • 1 lemon
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tbsp small capers, drained
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. 1

    Bring a pan of salted water to the boil for the beans. Meanwhile, remove the skin and pith from the lemon, then dice the flesh – the best way to skin the lemon, using a small, sharp serrated knife, is to cut a slice from either end of the lemon, then stand it upright on a board and slice the peel off, downwards, turning the lemon as you go.

  2. 2

    Boil the beans for 3-4 minutes or until tender. Halve the cherry tomatoes, tip them into a bowl with the diced lemon, parsley, capers and olive oil.

  3. 3

    Drain the beans and, while they are still hot, tip them into the bowl and toss them together with the other ingredients and some seasoning.
