Reviews for Lemony Almond-Feta Green Beans
"I will make this again. We loved the flavor! Better than just plain green beans."
"Thought this was good. Had to add a little more salt but overall I would make again. I think it would be yummy to try adding some halved grape tomatoes next time."
"This recipe just didn't work for us, maybe I cooked the beans too long? But the feta didn't seem to go with it and no one really enjoyed these flavors together."
"I would actually like to hear from people who have eaten this recipe… That's what a review is .."
"How can anyone review a recipe before trying it ?"
"Please have more recipes like this. I cannot make many TOH recipes because they contain dairy products that are hard to substitute. Would like to see more recipes easy for lactose intolerant people to use--adding suitable substitutes after recipes would be very helpful, especially for things like condensed milk, sour cream, cream cheese, etc. FYI, feta cheese is always okay. I look forward to using this recipe."
"I cannot wait to try this...If there were 6 stars I would give them even from just reading this recipe...I agree with jamieml.....I read and enjoy reading lots of TOH recipes, but health issues make reading them as far as I go..."
"I am already giving this five stars before even trying out the recipe - simply because it's the first recipe I have received from Taste of Home in my email in box in AGES that couldn't be renamed "Heart Attack on a Plate." This green bean recipe looks appetizing, fresh, healthy and perfect for a hot summer night. THANK YOU for sending me something I can eat, enjoy and feel good about! Can't wait to try it out. Maybe tonight!"
