Serves 4
This is an official 5 A Day recipe, providing two servings of vegetables per person.

Here's a delicious dish that you can make ahead easily with the microwave. The fresh ginger in the dressing gives a zesty boost to these old favorites.

• 2 cups green beans, cut into two inch pieces (fresh or frozen)
• 2 cups broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
• ¼ cup water

Sesame-Ginger Dressing:
• 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce*
• 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar*
• ½ teaspoon sesame oil*
• 1 teaspoon honey

Whisk dressing ingredients together. Set aside.

Microwave fresh green beans with water in covered bowl on high for 2 to 3 minutes.

Remove cover carefully, allowing steam to escape away from you; stir green beans and add fresh broccoli florets.

Cover and microwave together on high for 2 minutes. (If using frozen green beans and/or broccoli, follow microwave directions on packaging.)

Drain green beans and broccoli; mix in dressing while still warm.

Let vegetables chill in refrigerator until ready to serve (at least 5 to 10 minutes).

*Available in most grocery stores (usually in the Asian dry goods section).
