My husband and I used to visit a Lebanese restaurant in DC and loved their dish called 'Loubieh Bel Zeit.' When we moved away we craved this dish, so I tried to re-create it and came up with the following recipe. My husband LOVES it and wants me to make it all of the time now.

I used canned green beans. I wasn't thrilled with the recipe to be honest.
