This almondine recipe is a beloved favorite shared by editor-at-large Shane Mitchell. The dish—a study in contrasts between blanched green beans, sharp chopped shallots, and buttery, crunchy almonds—pairs nicely with summer fare, from grilled meats and fried chicken to lighter, meatless mains. Together, the ingredients work in perfect harmony.
- Kosher salt
- 2 lb. string beans, trimmed
- 2 tbsp. (1 oz.) unsalted butter
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- 3 shallots, chopped
- Freshly ground black pepper
Reimagine the green bean casserole—and then go way beyond it.
