    2 pounds green beans, trimmed
    1/4 cup sliced almonds
    1 large shallot, thinly sliced
    4 tablespoons butter
    zest of one lemon
    3 oz. crumbled blue cheese


If you make this ahead of time, reheat in oven just before serving, then top with blue cheese immediately upon removing from oven.


Bring pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, heat sauté pan over medium heat and toast almonds until just turning golden, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from pan and reduce heat to low. Melt butter in pan, then add shallot and cook, stirring once or twice, until shallots are golden brown, about 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat. Add a pinch of salt to boiling water and blanch green beans for 4 minutes, then drain, rinse with cold water and add to pan with shallots. Add almonds and lemon zest and toss gently. Top with blue cheese and serve.
