Green Beans with Walnuts and Tarragon

Green Beans with Walnuts and Tarragon Green Beans with Walnuts and Tarragon

Lovely mingle of flavours. I toasted the walnets. Used dried tarragon but soaked in the oils w/orgainc cider vinegar in advance. Oh yeah and added 1 clove of finely minced garlic. A big hit with or without the garlic. High class side dish using the fresh beans from my local country road farmer.
