Make Skillet-Charred Green Beans With Salsa in Minutes
Serves 4 (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
Resist the urge to stir the green beans often—that’s the secret to getting a nice amount of char. For even better flavor, use 13 oz. of fresh green beans from your local farmers market; trim them yourself before steaming in a covered container in the microwave.

5 teaspoons olive oil, divided
3/4 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup salsa
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
