This is just beautiful! I cooked as directed, but found I needed more time to get my green beans crisp tender. As posted, I found it a little bland, so I added some salt and pepper. I used pecans instead of walnuts, my preference. Loved the addition of the nuts....they are what made this dish! Thanks for sharing!
What a pretty side dish & it's easy enough to be made anytime! Like the other reviewers I had to increase the cooking time in order for the green beans to be crisp tender. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
This is excellent. I didnt have any walnuts so I used slivered almonds. Thank you for the recipe.
