  1. Preheat your oven to 425.

In a small bowl add the Greek yogurt, Dijon and whole grain mustard, shallot, capers, juice and zest of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon of parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix together and then pour over the salmon so the salmon is completely covered in the sauce.
  3. Then, add the string beans to the same sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil, almonds, juice and zest of the other lemon, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
