"A salty-sweet side dish sure to please veggie-lovers and sweet-tooths alike! I can normally find a good-sized bag of fresh green beans at a fruit stand or farmer's market for about a dollar."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

green beans, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces
packed brown sugar
I made these for Easter. Very big hit, although I used about 2 lbs. of green beans and only 1/2 cup of brown sugar-no white sugar. I think that was a good move as I think it would have been way too sweet otherwise.
Definitely too sweet. If I make it again, I would reduce the sugar by half.
I used chopped almonds instead. I also added some finely diced shallots and balsamic vinegar. This is an excellent side dish!!
I reduced the sugar by half and added balsamic reduction. It turned out awesome!!!
Fantastic! These are so easy to make and a HUGE hit!
I made a few changes to this recipe, as I didn't have walnuts and I don't eat dairy (butter): I cooked the green beans in olive oil instead of butter. I had to pour off some of the water as it was too much. I didn't use the white sugar based on some reviews that said it was too sweet. When the beans were done with the brown sugar and salt, I found it a little bland for my taste (could have been the missing butter), so I threw in a little more salt and about a tablespoon of garlic, and sauteed it all for a couple more minutes. Then they were amazing! I will definitely be making it again with my revisions.
A nice and new recipe. I love walnuts and they were so tasty with the greenbeens and brown sugar. I got many compliments on my dinner that evening.
I received comments from some of my guests that it was too sweet.
