This recipe makes an elegant presentation. The green beans were steamed in a large skillet, drained and returned along with the butter and lemon juice. I might try using some lemon zest next time around. Made for PARTY 2011.
- 1⁄2 cup sliced almonds
- 2 lbs fresh green beans
- 1⁄3 cup butter or 1⁄3 cup margarine
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
