Found this in Southern Living and it was quite good. Always looking for a way to make green beans.

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.
