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
