Green Beans with Almonds
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add green beans, and cook until bright green but still firm, about 3-4 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Heat the Roasted Garlic Olive Oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat (or a large saute pan), add the shallot and sauté about 2 minutes. Add the green beans to the skillet, season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper and continue cooking until the green beans become fork tender but are still crisp, about 3-4 minutes.
Transfer the green beans to a large serving platter and drizzle the Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar on top.
In the same skillet used to cook the green beans, add the sliced almonds over medium heat and toast them until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle on top of the green beans.
