A touch of lemon juice gives a fresh taste to this simple side dish from Ruth Andrewson of Leavenworth, Washington. "Slivered almonds look so pretty with the French-style green beans, and they add a tasty crunch, too," she notes.
- 1 package (16 ounces) frozen French-style green beans
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Place beans in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.
- Meanwhile, in a small skillet over low heat, toast almonds in butter. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice and salt. Drain beans. Add almond mixture and toss to coat. Yield: 6-8 servings.
