    Gay Gilmore's Note:

    This is a very simple side dish, that has lots of flavor. I like to serve it in the fall in winter because it seems light and fresh and still well-balanced with creamy sides. I made it up all on my own ;-)

      I just had this as a side dish for dinner. I can still taste it. Yummy! I did add some butter to the olive oil. I made it with Bacon Wrapped Chicken #79944. All three of us loved this and the flavors went so well together we were in heaven! My husband loved this recipe I will be making it a lot. Thank you for posting.

      WOW, who knew there was a recipe. Thanks for posting it! I make this all the time and just discovered the beauty of using shallots vs. garlic and green onion. A far superior taste. This is a fantastic recipe. I prefer using fresh haricots to frozen green beans. The frozen seem to turn out waterlogged. Once in a while I throw in fresh or canned diced tomatoes.
