Keep your holidays zesty with Lemony Green Beans. This recipe is as fast as it is tasty.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 pound green beans, stem-end trimmed, and halved
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
What To Do:
  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat. When the skillet is hot, add the almonds and toast for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden; remove almonds and set aside.
     
  2. Add green beans to the skillet with water, oil, and salt. Increase heat to medium-high, cover skillet, and cook beans for 5 to 8 minutes, until bright-colored and fork-tender.
     
  3. Uncover and continue to cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, until the water evaporates and the green beans begin to sauté.
     
  4. Turn off heat, stir in toasted almonds, lemon peel, and parsley. Serve immediately.
Notes

Olive oil can be used to season, sauté, fry, and even bake. When replacing pourable oils with olive oil, simply replace the amount of oil specified in the recipe with the same amount of olive oil. If substituting olive oil for butter or margarine, use about one-fourth less olive oil.

Apple Bacon Coleslaw

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but it also adds a whole new twist to one of our long-time favorites! Between the crunch of the cabbage, the tartness of the apple, and the smokiness of the bacon, our Apple Bacon Coleslaw is truly a winner.
