Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green beans and toss to evenly coat with olive oil. Cook, stirring occasionally for even cooking, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add walnuts, white balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper; mix to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally so walnuts don't burn, until beans are soft but maintain some crunch, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and sprinkle with lemon juice and red pepper flakes.

Cook's Notes:

If you do not have a basil-infused olive oil, use 1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil.

If you are using a fresh lemon, grate and add 1 to 2 teaspoons zest for extra flavor.

You can also substitute almonds for the walnuts.

I wasn't impressed with this recipe when I served it; however the next day when cold the beans tasted better. I did swap out sliced almonds for the walnuts which may have made a big difference in the taste. Not sure I'd make it again. Read More
