When summer's bountiful harvest is here, I look for ways to prepare the freshest vegetables in a flavorful way that does not overpower their natural taste. This is a good way to enhance the flavor of delectable, fresh green beans.

What a nice way to prepare green beans. I did cut back the amount of vinegar, as it is not a favorite of my household. Enjoyed the onion,garlic and cheese.

This was a nice change for green beans. I used a little red wine vinegar, not a full 1/4 cup though. I didn't want it to be too vinegary for the kids. All the kids ate them. Thanks for posting this recipe.
