    Cookgirl's Note:

    Found this recipe on the web recently. Love the combination of flavors. Use the best quality green beans available. Canned beans won't work in this recipe. UPDATE: I've eliminated the step for submerging the beans in ice cold water per suggestion of a reviewer. Always room for improvement!

      The sauce in this recipe is absolutely delish. The beans however, were cold once in the bowl of ice water, so I couldn’t keep them warm as the recipe says. Next time instead of pouring the sauce over the beans I will put them in the pan with the sauce and toss till covered and warm, and then serve. The kids generally don’t like beans but they loved the sauce so they ate the beans! Thanks

      This is an unusual way of dressing green beans, which I think would go beautifully as an accompaniment to plain-ish dishes such as grilled chicken. I had to use olive oil, since I forgot to buy any peanut oil, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The almonds added a nice textural variation, and the cloves really made it stand out from the crowd. Very good!
