Green Beans with Toasted Almond Gremolata

Photo: Karry Hosford

For a restaurant-caliber presentation, leave the green beans whole, and toss with toasted almonds, garlic, lemon rind, and fresh parsley. The garnish (without the nuts) is called gremolata and typically accompanies the veal dish osso buco but it also can add great flavor to steamed vegetables.
