Green beans with warm bacon dressing

Woman’s Day

Serves: 8

  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 3 large shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper

In large pot, bring green beans and enough water to cover to a boil. Cook 6 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp; drain on paper towel. Remove all but 2 Tbsp bacon fat from skillet. Add shallots and sauté 1 to 2 minutes until slightly golden. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar. Add green beans, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Crumble bacon on top.

*Chef’s note: This has become my go-to green bean recipe; a great veggie to serve for company because it’s easy to make and goes well with many different entrees. Not to mention super tasty!
