This is so easy ~ I love easy recipes ~ and so flavorful. I made this tonight and had to taste it of course, and I'm so glad I chose this recipe, as I plan on taking it to our Thanksgiving Day dinner. I'm sure my MiL will be thrilled with it. UPDATE: 091127 ~ This was a HUGE HIT with the family at Thanksgiving and it was delicious ~ the first serving dish to get emptied. Thanks MDJim for a fast and delicious new side dish. Made for ZAAR COOKBOOK TAG, November 2009!

Fantastic flavored bean salad!!! I made this using one can of french style green beans, drained, so then cut the rest of the recipe in half. I only marinaded the beans and onions for about 3 hours, so I let it cook for awhile after they were heated through, to allow the flavors to cook into the veggies. Thanks for a great green bean recipe Jim!!! Congrats on your win in the 1st football pool of 09!!! :-)

This went over very well tonight! I made a half recipe, as I am only feeding 3, but other than that made as directed. Excellent flavor, super easy. Can't beat that! I served it with Mahogany Chicken & some buttermilk biscuits. Made & enjoyed for your week 1 Football Pool 2009 win! WTG, Jim! :)
