To grill the green beans

1. Toss green beans in a large mixing bowl with a splash of oil and pinch of each salt and pepper.

2. Preheat a grill skillet over medium heat. When skillet is hot, coat with a light mist of cooking spray and add green beans evenly across.

3. Once grill marks appear after a few minutes, turn green beans to grill other side, and keep them moving to prevent burning. Remove from heat and allow to cool. This is a killer simple side dish as is.
