“These are so yummy--and oh so easy! I like to use frozen whole green beans versus the cut ones. If you can find the slender whole beans, that's even better! These can be made with fresh beans too, but you have to adjust the cooking time. Being that fresh bean season is so short, I usually use the frozen. For the sliced almonds, I really love "Roasted Garlic Caesar" Almond Accents made by Sunkist. These can usually be found in the produce or salad dressing section of your grocery store.”
