When picking a lemon, you always want to choose the heaviest one. Typically, the heavier the lemon, the juicier it is. And if you want to get the most juice out of that lemon, remember that putting it in the microwave for about 15 seconds will help it release more juice.

Now how to use that juice? I'm so glad you asked! A great way to jazz up any veggie is with the bright, tangy flavors of citrus. In this case, I'm bringing new life to green beans by adding lemon juice and zest to the dish.
