Green beans also are called string beans or snap beans. Whatever the name, these beans are low in calories, filling and taste best when the beans are thinner than a pencil.
In a steamer basket over boiling water, cook beans and red peppers until crisp-tender.
Whisk together all remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
Transfer beans to a serving bowl. Add dressing and stir to coat.
