This is a really easy way to give fresh green beans a little extra flavor and crunch.
Toast a few slivered almonds in a pan for a few minutes, without oil, until they are golden brown. Set aside.
Trims the ends of the beans and submerge in salted boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain. Add beans back to pan with a little olive oil and butter. Toss until well coated. Garnish with toasted almonds and a sprinkle of salt. See? So easy!
