    Gigi, French string beans? Can you use regular? I know what French style is, but have never seen in the produce here in Memphis. ( but then again, you don’t see alot here in Memphis at grocery stores) lol

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      You can use the regular green beans, make sure they are smaller and remove both ends.
      You are in the South, I am sure your local farmer will have some.

  8. Chef Mireille says:

    I love Gremolata and you reminded me I have not made this in forever. It was so good on the green beans (though I did replace the pine nuts with pistacchio due to the high price of the pine nuts)

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      A great suggestion to substitute the pine nuts with pistachios, thank you.
      I am happy you enjoyed it.

    An amazing recipe. Will be soon trying it out.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you and enjoy!

  12. Keirsten says:

    I love green beans so much! This Gremolata sounds & looks delicious. And I could easily veganize it using a vegan Parmesan or even omitting it.
    I’d totally eat the whole bowl, no side dish 😅🙌

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      I have eaten the whole bowl and loved every bite of it.
      You do need the Parmesan, but a substitute vegan sounds perfect. It is about the texture and taste.

  13. Judith says:

    Very tasty! Will definitely make this again.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you.

  14. Holly says:

    Excellent recipe! I served this with dinner last night and everyone agreed it’s a keeper. And since my mind is already on Thanksgiving, I’m thinking this will be a fantastic alternative to green bean casserole!

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you, Holly! I make this Gremolata every Thanksgiving because it is easy to prepare and can be halfway prepared the night before.
      Enjoy and thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet

  15. Mallory says:

    I ate them cold like you recommended — absolutely delicious! Will be making again.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you, Mallory! I am so happy you enjoyed them.
