Balsamic Green Beans

I heart green beans.  I will eat them in any dish, in any way, just as long as there are green beans involved.  We love them fresh in the summer and this has a wonderful, light balsamic sauce.  They get better overnight as they marinate so making this the day before is a good idea too.  Recipe from Southern Living Magazine.


-1 pound green beans, trimmed

-2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

-1 Tbsp brown sugar

-1 tsp Dijon Mustard

-Salt and pepper to taste


1.  Cook green beans in boiling salted water to cover 5 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.  Plunge green beans into ice water to stop the cooking process, and drain.

2.  Stir together vinegar, brown sugar and mustard until smooth.  Add salt and pepper.  Add green beans; toss to coat.
