Tangy Green Beans

Tangy Green Beans are my kids favorite and also a sure crowd pleaser.

They're a wonderful side dish to any main dish.

This is my favorite way to prepare green beans. I recommend these Tangy Green Beans to anyone looking to integrate healthier side dishes into their diet, that are bursting with flavor.

Green beans are low in calories, and high in fiber, folate and potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure. Vinegar gives these green beans a tangy flavor which is fresh and a pop of flavor. The toasted almonds are a flavor boost, don't skip those.

Prep Time 15 minutes

Yields: 6-8 Serving


  • 1 pound of green beans, ends trimmed

  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar

  • 1 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper

  • 1 tbsp sliced almonds, toasted


  • Place beans in a steamer over a saucepan with boiling water for 3-5 minutes.

  • Combine vinegar, oil, mustard, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir with a whisk until well combined.

  • Add steamed beans to vinegar mixture; toss well to coat.

  • Toast almonds in a non-stick pan for 1-2 min until fragrant and golden, let cool.
