Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add green beans and cook just until they turn bright green and are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and cool immediately in a bowl of ice water. Once cooled, drain beans and pat dry.

In a large bowl, stir together yogurt, lemon juice, shallots and salt. Add green beans and toss until evenly coated.
