I found this recipe in the March 2008 Cooking Light. This was my first time ever using fresh green beans. We loved this so much I'm planning on making it again later this week.
1 pound fresh green beans - trimmed
2 strips of bacon
1/4 cup chopped shallots omitted
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
S&P to taste.
Cook green beans in boiling water for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Cook 2 strips bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Add shallots to drippings in pan; cook for 3 minutes. Add 2 tablespoon white wine vinegar; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add garlic and green beans; toss to coat. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and salt and pepper.
