Pour olive oil and sea salt into pan at medium to high heat. Prepare leeks by trimming of tops and bottoms, cutting into quarters and chopping into 1/2-inch pieces. Place in pan with heated oil. Saute until leeks start to brown (about 5-10 minutes). Add chopped dill, and stir. Keep on low heat until green beans are finished.

Prepare a pot of boiling water for your green beans. Add beans once boiling and let cook for about 3 minutes. Make sure they are still crisp. Strain and cool with cold water. Pat dry and add to pan with leeks. Stir and serve.
