    Mirj's Note:

    An easy side dish that is always a hit in my house. I've been told that this is a Southern dish, but my mother claims she used to make this back when she lived in Sweden. Eat and decide.

      These beans are delicious!! I cut the recipe in half, so we had them for two nights and they were just as good reheated in the microwave. The combination of flavours, rosemary, lemon and onion and the crunch of the walnuts is great! I will be making a whole recipe of these for my contribution to Christmas dinner, I know everyone will love them Mirj, thanks for sharing.
