Didn't really think this combination worked very well. It was VERY sweet and an odd combination of flavors with balsamic and dijon. I ended up putting a lot of fresh lemon over the top to lighten up the sweetness and improve the flavor.

A tasty change from regular green beans. Easy and smells great! I appreciate recipes like this that use ingredients that I always have on hand. Definitely will make again. Made for Spring PAC 2013.

I steamed the green beans until they were tender. I don't like them crisp. I used grainy dijon mustard. This is very tasty. Thanks Cooking with love :) Made for Healthy tag game
