A hint of balsamic vinegar gives a fresh taste to this simple side shared by Glenda Malan. "Sliced almonds dress up green beans tastefully when company's coming," she relates from Lake Forest, California. "I can't think of an entree this dish doesn't complement."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 22, 2010

Easy to prepare, this was a flavorful side dish. It did require 2 pans and 2 burners which was a little cumbersome while making a stove-top entree. Would probably choose it next time for an entree that was in the oven or grille.
