Sauteed green beans tossed with a Dijon vinaigrette, toasted breadcrumbs, and crunchy toasted almonds. It’s a great side dish for the holidays.


  • 3 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds


  1.  In a large skillet, heat one tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Place the green beans in the pan and cook them for about five minutes, moving them around the pan using tongs. Add the salt and garlic and toss the green beans with them. Add the lemon juice and cover the pan with a lid. Steam the green beans in the lemon juice for five minutes.
  2. Whisk the Dijon, balsamic vinegar, two tablespoons of olive oil, a pinch of salt and the black pepper in a small bowl until combined. Uncover the green beans and turn the heat to low. In a small skillet, toast the breadcrumbs and almonds over medium heat just until the almonds are fragrant.
  3. Add the vinaigrette to the green beans and toss to coat them. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs and almonds over the top and serve.
