Directions
1.
Bring large saucepan of water to boiling. Add 1 tablespoon salt and green beans. Cook beans until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and immediately plunge in ice water. Let sit in ice water 3 minutes or until cool. Drain well and set aside.
2.
In small bowl combine parsley, rosemary, lime peel and juice, and garlic. Set aside.
3.
In 12-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add beans. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through. Season with 1/2 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Remove from heat. Stir in lime mixture and hazelnuts. Serve with lime wedges. Serves 8.
Tip
  • *Tip: To toast hazelnuts, spread in single layer on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned. Remove papery skins from hazelnuts by rubbing nuts with clean towel.
