Green Beans with Creamy Pistachio Sauce Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I was asked to bring vegetables to my daughter-in-law's Christmas dinner, I thought how boring. But then I remembered how Mom used to serve them with butter and evaporated milk. I added the pistachios for crunch and it turned out to be a star at the dinner table! —Loretta Ouellette, Pompano Beach, Florida
