1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley
2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper

In a food processor combine olives, olive oil, parsley, lemon peel, and lemon juice. Cover and pulse with on/off turns until mixture is almost a paste. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside for at least 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, place green beans in a steamer basket; set over boiling water. Cover and steam for 10 to 12 minutes or until just tender. Transfer to a large bowl filled with ice water; drain well.
Toss green beans with about half of the olive mixture before serving.
