Green beans are low in calories and full of nutrients —vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese, vitamin A, fiber, potassium, folate, and iron. Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, and antioxidants such as phenols and tocopherals, as well as vitamin E. So fire up the grill and enjoy this with your family or friends!
