These were great, I didn't have a lot of almonds so I used what was left of my pine nuts, and it was very good!

This recipe was delicious!! I brought it to a party for a side dish and there wasn't one bean left. But I did let the beans cook a little longer so they would be softer.

Gosh, Derf, this is a great green bean recipe! I used canned beans, and, omitted the almonds...They are soooo good! Definitely want to try the vinaigrette on salad greens...Bet that's good, too! Thanks so much for sharing...They were a big hit in my house!

These were delicious, a big hit at the party I brought them to. I took some suggestions from the reviews and doubled the dressing (though that may have been just a tad too much), used fresh tarragon instead of thyme, and toasted pine nuts instead of toasted almonds. I also added a few extra garlic cloves (the frozen kind from Trader Joe's that just dissolve, they're perfect for dressings) and some extra olive oil into the dressing because the lemon was a bit too tangy as is.

I had 3 lbs. of beans. I doubled the vinigrette recipe except for the salt and garlic. I didn't have thyme or Dijon, so I used wasabi mustard and tarragon. I don't know if my lemon was unusually tart, but I added 1 half teaspoon sugar and 1 more teaspoon oil. It was delicious!! I served it for Christmas dinner and got rave reviews!!
