My family loves fresh green beans, so we eat them a lot during the summer. This is a really yummy way to serve them. And it has a pretty presentation, so I like serving these as a side dish when we have guests over for dinner.
FYI – I don’t weigh the green beans; I just eyeball how much I want to make… Also, I’ve used frozen beans before and it works, although obviously it’s not nearly as good as fresh. Thanks for passing this recipe on to me, Katherine!

1 lb fresh green beans
1 ½ to 2 T. butter
2 T. honey
Steam green beans until just tender. Drain and set aside in saucepan. In a small skillet, sauté cashews in butter over low heat for 5 minutes. Add honey and cook 1 minute longer, stirring constantly. (I sauted on med heat until the cashews were golden and the sauce was frothy.) Pour sauce over beans and toss until coated.
