I made this recipe was a side dish for Thanksgiving dinner, it was incredible! The taste of the walnuts with the green beans was very unique, my family really liked it, I didn't have walnut oil, so I just added olive oil, and I also added 3 cloves of fresh garlic - that I toasted with the butter just before serving. A definite keeper, excellent side dish for any dinner! No more boring beans!

It's not that this was bad, it was just not as good as I expected it to be. Thanks, but I think I'll try another recipe next time.

Oh my goodness, I had no idea green beans could be so delicious! I didn't have any walnut oil, so instead I used olive oil as other reviewers suggested, plus I only used one-half the butter that was called for. I also added 2 cloves of garlic that I minced and sautéed in the hot oil before adding the beans. This dish was so tasty and flavorful; I will definitely be making it again!

Walnut oil was a splurge and worth it!

I made this as part of a buffet for a friend's daughter's wedding--for 50 people! I was working in a tiny kitchen in a comunity center--it had a sstove and microwave. I had purchased 2lb bags of trimmed beans at Costco--to cook, I snipped off a corner of the bag and microwaved them for 6 minutes. Then I melted the butter and added the walnut oil and toasted nuts and tossed that with the cooked beans. Form there, they went out to the steam table on the buffet. Lovely!

These were the best green beans I have ever had and I really do not care for green beans. I used frozen beans and also a clove of garlic and olive oil like others have mentioned because I didn't have walnut oil. Excellent and I will definately make again.

Good, but be sure to finely chop the walnuts!

Great recipe. Very easy. I had a large dinner party and these were a HIT, for people who liked nuts. Sent my husband to buy ingredients, he couldn't find walnut oil. I substited olive oil. Sure would have been better other way. BUT still great.
