This comes from Prince Edward Island Canada, (home of Anne of Green Gables fame.) It is a colorful blend of beans and carrots with a nice crisp texture. Posted for the Zaar World Tour to Canada, 2005.

nice stir fry .i took stacky at her word and didnt use all vinegar as we have same tastes dee
This is a very interesting recipe. Quite easy to make, but a little different for our tastes. I found that the cider vinegar really overpowered the flavor, so the next time I try this I will probably cut back by half. The bacon and bacon grease added a depth that was welcomed, because overall it tasted like a sweet & sour type dressing. Of course since we're all used to Grandma's green beans with bacon and butter, it's just a matter of taste I think. Objectively, this has a lively flavor and I can see why it is a favorite for many! I did find, that eating this dish as leftovers the next day, was quite enjoyable -- as a cold salad, rather than a warm dish. Overall, wonderful, easy to follow directions and quite a suprize to the tastebuds! Thanks for broadening our horizons, Laurie, with this recipe! Its' presentation is beautiful, and its' flavors are truly unique.
I tried this dish but not too keen on it..My fault I think, over cooked the vegetables, came out a little too soggy, they did taste good but next time I won't over cook them
