Marinated Green Beans with Almond Vinaigrette

 

Green almonds are a seasonal spring item, picked months before their shells harden and split to reveal conventional almonds. These fuzzy green pods are entirely edible with soft, jelly-like texture and mild grassy, sweet-tart flavor. During their all-too-brief season, we're eating them right out of hand, shaving them over appetizers, or slicing them thin to toss over salads as we have here in this bright spring recipe.
