This is a quick and easy side dish that works well with grilled food. It was published in Cooking Light as part of a meal suggestion for grilled lamb. I like to add a squeeze of lemon juice over this just before serving. The original recipe calls for walnuts, but use what you like.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam or boil green beans just until crisp-tender.
  2. Drain, and combine beans and onion in a serving bowl.
  3. Add the oil, salt, and pepper, tossing to coat.
  4. Top with the chopped nuts and feta cheese.

We liked these. Ours was a bit salty, I didn't measure the feta so maybe I put on too much but it was still a hit. I forgot the squeeze of lemon juice but I will use it next time. I used pecans because it's what I had, I think next time I will leave out the nuts our use walnuts.

Delicious with walnuts! I missed the note on squeezing a little lemon on it before serving but I'll do that next time. My husband thought it would be better with a touch of balsamic but I bet the lemon would do the trick. Thanks!

Delicious side dish!! I left out the nuts, just because I didn't have any. I mixed the olive oil and lemon juice together, then drizzled over the top and tossed. Great great great!!!!
