This is a wonderful veggie side dish to serve to guests, it is more like a bean salad, as it is not meant to be served hot, but at room temperature. The amounts I have listed are only estimated as I really do not measure any thing when I make this dish, you can adjust all ingredients to taste. You can really use just about any kind of nuts for this recipe, I have even made this with toasted walnuts. The amounts in this recipe serve 4 but you can double or even triple the recipe to serve at a dinner party. This green bean dish is good enough to be served a fancy restaurant, it is that good!
