A mixture of things I enjoy. Good way to use fresh beans. I love maple bacon, brown sugar and cider vinegar together.

  1. Cook the cut beans in boiling water until crisp-tender. Drain.

Giving this four stars because it wasn't really clear in the directions how to serve this--hot or cold. I served it warm and it was just okay. My husband liked it the next day cold.
