  • Reviews

  • “Made this for a large group (triple the recipe).I left out the lemon juice when steaming the green beans.The color was good and the gremolata perfectly seasoned the beans.I’m a green bean fan so I’ve made several times since and enjoy the leftovers all week.Very fresh taste when made with fresh green beans, but I also made with whole frozen beans and can’t tell much difference.Thank you!”

  • “Bergy’s right…lemon does turn the beans an unattractive color.Even the lemon pepper I used to sub for the lemon juice/rind did.”

  • “I had some green beans to use up, so this recipe appealed to me.It turned out quite nice and I might even try it at room temperature or cold for those hot summer days.It has a nice fresh taste that we liked”
