If your grocer doesn't carry bags of pretrimmed green beans, start with 1 3/4 lb. of untrimmed beans to get an equivalent amount of beans called for here.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook green beans in boiling salted water to cover 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Plunge beans into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add garlic, and sauté 1 minute or until golden. Stir in green beans, lemon rind, salt, and pepper; sauté 4 minutes or until beans are thoroughly heated. Add lemon juice and almonds; toss well.
