Description

One of the veggie side dishes from our cooking class, these green beans are vibrant in color and still have a little crunch. Blanch them the night before and assembly on the day of will take no time. The bright lemon flavor and wonderful crunch of the Marcona almonds are perfection. 

 

Get Started
Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add salt. Fill a large bowl with ice and water. Add the green beans to the boiling salted water and cook until bright green but still firm, about 2 minutes. Remove the beans from the water and place directly into the ice bath. When cool, remove from the bath and pat dry with paper towels.
