Grilled Green Beans With Marcona Almonds

Savory Sight: Grilled Green Beans With Marcona Almonds

Green beans' crunch and marcona almonds' rich, nutty flavor make this recipe from Foxes Love Lemons the perfect Summer side dish.

I've recently discovered Marcona almonds. These almonds are imported from Spain, although you can usually find them at upscale grocery stores here in the States. They are plump, sweet, and more moist than the almonds we're used to in America. They're often lightly fried in oil before being packaged and sold. So yeah, they're basically deep-fried almonds. A true fat kid's let's-just-pretend-this-is-healthy-because-it's-almonds snack.

Whenever I buy Marcona almonds for a particular recipe, I basically have to hide them from myself so I don't eat them all directly out of the container before they ever make it to the dinner table. I was luckily able to restrain myself and reserve a handful of these babies for this simple Summer side dish.
