Recipe Tip

You can buy sliced almonds already toasted at most grocery stores, but if you can’t find them, you can toast your own. Just add them to a sauté pan over medium heat and toast for about 5 minutes until golden brown.

Can I Make This Dish Ahead of Time?

For sure! In fact, I’m planning on making this for Thanksgiving this year as an alternative to Green Bean Casserole. I’m going to make the green beans and the dressing separately the day before and just mix them right before dinner!
