Green Beans with Lime and Rosemary

I knew we had a winner when Susan posted the recipe for fresh green beans with lime on her blog. I am always looking for new recipes that showcase the colors of spring! I've included a link to Susan's beautiful blog where she explains that she has been making this side dish for her family for many years. 


Green Beans with Lime and Rosemary

2 lb. Fresh Green Beans (I cut the recipe in half and used 1 lb. of beans)
1/3 cup Fresh Italian Parsley
1 TB Snipped Fresh Rosemary
2 tsp Finely Shredded Lime Peel
1 TB Fresh Lime Juice
1-2 Cloves Garlic minced
2 TB Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3 cup Hazelnuts (toasted and chopped) 

Bring a large saucepan of water to boiling. Add 1 tablespoon salt and green beans. Cook green beans until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

Drain and immediately plunge into ice water. Let sit in ice water 3 minutes or until cooled. Drain well and set aside. 

In a small bowl combine parsley, rosemary, lime peel and juice, and garlic. Set aside.

In a 12-inch skillet heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add beans. Cook, stirring occasionally. 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through. Season with Salt and Pepper.

Stir in lime mixture and hazelnuts. 
Serve with Lime Wedges 
Serves 8

We were able to eat outdoors last evening, and enjoy our little slice of paradise. Happy Mother's Day week!
