Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Melt margarine in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add beans; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender.
  • Stir in lemon juice, mustard and dill; cook 2 to 3 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently.
  • Sprinkle with nuts.

Variations

For milder flavor, reduce lemon juice and mustard to 1 Tbsp. each. For stronger dill flavor, increase dill weed to 1/2 tsp.

How to Toast Nuts

Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.

Substitute

Prepare using frozen whole green beans.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think this is either a love it or hate it recipe. I think this is either a love it or hate it recipe. My husband and I really liked it, my teenage boys hated it. I substituted Sunkist Almond Accents (in the original flavor) instead of toasting the almonds myself. I used a little less mustard than called for, and cooked the green beans longer so they weren't so crunchy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am the middle child and the only one who loves to cook. I am the middle child and the only one who loves to cook. Every time I cook, my older sister requests this. I've made it so many times that I don't like it as much, so I just fix it for her when she visits! It's so easy (after a few times) you don't need the recipe to remember. Works well with snow peas also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not a fan of almonds so I left that out. I'm not a fan of almonds so I left that out. Because I've had dijon overpower other recipes, I decided to go light on it and only use 2 tsp instead of the 2 tbsp that the recipe called for. There was still a definite dijon flavor, but it was perfect! We all loved it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The beans were really good! The beans were really good! My boyfriend loved them!! I took some of the suggestions and used less of the mustard, personally I had to add some salt to mine as well. They were delicious, specially considering I had never cooked green beans that were not from a can!

I made this for Easter dinner and it was very good, but the kids found it a bit too tangy for their taste. And this was after I toned it down a bit by adding addt'l butter! The adults all loved it, and I'll definitely make it again--a nice change of pace.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would make this recipe again but only if I modified it. I would make this recipe again but only if I modified it. I agree that the portions of lemon juice and dijon made the beans too tangy. Maybe skip the lemon juice altogether and add 1Tbs dijon mustard, instead of two. More dill and butter helps too.
