Simple, but tasty. I used sliced almonds (toasted) as my nut, and added a bit of ginger powder. Delicious!

Didn't imagine something this easy could taste so great! French beans and walnuts really go wonderfully together. Next time, I'll stir the beans into the sauce, instead of the other way round... that way none of the beans get left out :) Also Bergy, all your veggie recipes that I've tried have that uncanny "don't-you-dare-cook-me-for-a-second-longer" crunch that's pretty darn out of this world... thanks a ton!

Hi Bergy..These are so easy and fast to make, they were a big hit for our dinner party. I had never used pecans with green beans before and the flavor was outstanding. I doubled the recipes. (big eaters) and it was wonderful with the seafood menu. thanks so much. 2 thumbs up.

These were so easy and delicious. I also added some bacon pieces. They were a big hit on Christmas day.

Excellent -- I did double the balsamic vinegar, however the second time to give it a little more balsamic vinegar taste. Personal taste only.

Wonderful green beans. Using fresh green beans is essential for the success of this recipe. I followed your directions and the only change in ingredients was to use more balsamic vinegar. I doubled the amount. The pecans were a bonus. Easy and elegant. Thanks Bergy.

I LOVED these green beans. They are so fresh and flavorful -- the sauce with nuts is the very best tasting way to eat green beans we've ever had! YUM!!!
