Vegetable Side Dish - Green Beans with Bacon and Vinegar
Posted Jan 07 2009 2:52pm
My chiropractor and I always share recipes.
She was sharing her love of vegetable side dishes yet expressing how tired she gets of cooking them the same way all the time!
I couldn't agree more
This recipe, something she made for a holiday meal, sounded just wonderful.
Tonight I tried it.
Cook 6 strips of bacon until crumbly. I used a turkey bacon. Stem 1 lb of fresh green beans. Steam for 12 minutes and toss them in an ice water bath.
Heat some olive oil, add the green beans, toss. Add 1/3 cup vinegar. She suggested a mild vinegar like apple cider or red wine. I used a sherry vinegar which was full flavored and perhaps a tad too strong. Simmer for 3 minutes or until green beans are hot , add the crumbled bacon and serve
