Here's a fresh twist on a classic French recipe! Green beans almondine is a delicious light veggie dish, equally suited as a standalone snack or alongside a heartier meal. Our version uses Orange Tarragon and Provencal Seasoned Salt together for a complimentary combination of seasoning.

Both of these blends are herb-forward with subtle floral notes, lending them an aroma reminiscent of a classic French bistro. We finished the dish by adding in dried cranberries alongside the toasted almonds, giving the dish a tart kick that complements the citrus in the spice blends.
