Lemon-Almond Green Beans

    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Prepared these green beans for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, and they were delightful! I used fresh green beans rather than frozen, and was careful not to overcook them. The lemon zest provided just the right amount of citrus without being over-lemony. Needed to add just a touch more salt at the table. Could have used fewer almonds, but perhaps my quantity of fresh beans did not quite equal the specified amount of frozen. Just finished the leftovers and they were amazing -- even better than yesterday. Will most definitely make these again.
