READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Normaone

This side dish recipe makes ordinary green beans company fare. Plus, they're easy. We like them warm or even room temperature. I found this years ago in Bon Appetit.

This recipe is something like my mother used to make. I used a rich balsamic vinegar to kick it up a notch. My family loved it.
