I make this all the time now. Between the flavors and the colors it is a perfect side dish for most main dishes. I often just cut up a ripe tomato instead of using cherries and I've used frozen green beans as well, always to great results, thanks!

YUM!! Just made this tonight for Father's Day. We all loved it. I made it with baked tilapia and brown rice. Thank you for an easy and yummy recipe.

Really pretty, with a great flavor. The only change I made was to cut down a little on the sugar.

Loved this recipe -- great flavour and it doesn't take anything away from the fresh garden beans. Will be repeating this one often.

this is a winner! I did tweak a few things, however. I fried and chopped 2 strips of bacon. I added an extra TB of butter. I used 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic and omitted the garlic salt I couldn't find fresh beans so i used frozen.

Oh my gosh! These beans are so great. I have been looking for a recipe for fresh green beans and this is it. My daughter ate about 1/2 pound by herself. I have already made them twice in one week. Thanks for posting!

YUM!!! I didn't have any basil, so I added oregano. Still yummy! All 3 of my kids ate it up (probably because of the bit of sweetness)! Thanks so much.

Seriously, This is spectacular. I was looking for an easy side to serve several nationalities and children, and this was a hit. Very good recipe. Thank you.

Used 1/2tsp sugar and olive oil rather than butter on this delicious dish of fresh vegetables. Very attractive.
