I loved this recipe and so did my husband. It was simple to put together and the flavors were amazing. The green beans still had some snap, the almonds added crunch, and the salty tang of the feta was delicious. My son wouldn't eat it, which is odd because he loves green beans, but maybe next time - and there will be a next time!

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.

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.
