1/2 red or green jalapeño pepper, minced (optional)

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tablespoons red onion, minced

2 tablespoons almonds, toasted

1/2 cup full fat plain Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons tahini

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 pound green beans, with stem ends cut

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

1.  In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons vinegar, garlic, red onion, and jalapeño pepper, if using.  Set aside in the refrigerator.
