  • Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat. Add olive oil and mix thoroughly. Add almond slivers, mix until coated, and spread out evenly in the bottom of the skillet. Stir continuously, until almonds just begin to turn golden brown. Remove almonds to a small bowl and continue stirring for 1 minute until cool enough to taste. Add salt.

  • Pour almonds over green beans and toss to ensure even coating. Serve warm.

Cook's Note:

Be careful not to scorch the almonds or they'll turn bitter and you'll have to start over.
