Serves: 8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes


For the Grilled Green Beans:

  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Marcona almonds
  • 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese

For the Orange-Shallot Dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Pinch of kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


1. Make the Green Beans: Heat grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Toss beans with oil and place in grill basket or grill wok. Grill 6 to 8 minutes or until beans are lightly browned and tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.

2. Meanwhile, make Orange-Shallot Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together orange juice, shallot, mustard, salt and pepper. While whisking, slowly drizzle in oil until all oil is incorporated.

3. Serve green beans drizzled sprinkled with almonds and cheese, and drizzled with Orange-Shallot Dressing.

    too many different flavors masking the taste of the green beans–maybe after I steam my beans i would top them with ONE of your additions though…
