Green Beans with Sweet Onion and Bacon
I saw this idea in a cookbook and it reminded me of a summer dish that my mother-in-law makes at her cottage, which I know Tom enjoys. So, I adapted it for the way we like to cook here. She cooks hers in a big pot of water, bacon and beans together, for a long time, in advance of the meal. I like to saute and serve.
Green beans and bacon go well together. The addition of finely chopped sweet onion and a honey-mustard vinegar dressing makes green beans even better.
Tom says this recipe is a keeper.
Here's what you will need:
1 quart fresh green beans
2 slices of low fat, low salt bacon
1/2 of a large sweet onion, like Vidalia, finely chopped
1 t. mustard
1 t. honey
splash of red wine vinegar
salt and pepper
