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.
