Show Us Your Life: Favorite Side Dishes

Kelly's topic for this week is favorite side dishes.  I have shared this recipe before, but it's so good and easy!

Green Beans with Bacon Balsamic Vinaigrette:

2 lbs of green beans, ends trimmed

2 bacon slices

3 tbsp shallots, minced

3 tbsp almond slivers

2 tbsp brown sugar

1/4 cup white or brown balsamic vinegar

Cook the green beans in boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until tender yet still crisp. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop them from cooking. Drain well and set aside.

Cook the bacon in a small skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove the bacon from skillet and crumble; set aside. Add shallots to bacon fat in the skillet, sauté for 1 minute. Add almonds, sauté for 1 minute. Remove the shallots and almonds and let cool. Add sugar and vinegar to the skillet; stir until sugar dissolves. Add the green beans, crumbled bacon, almonds, and shallots then stir until evenly coated.
