Sweet Balsamic Green Beans


This post will be a bit long as I not only am going to tell you about last night’s side dish but I also would like to share with you some great news about a new contact that I received yesterday.

Green beans are one of my favorite vegetables. Although I don’t know why maybe it’s because they are my favorite color green lol. But, I do admit that I do not like eating tasteless green beans. I mean come on who does? Ha, well this Sweet Balsamic Green recipe is anything but bland. No seriously this dish tastes AMAZING!!! And here’s how?

The honey combines incredibly well with the balsamic vinegar and garlic. Delicious. This is a recipe you have to try. I know you will make it over and over again.

Next, add the olive oil and the garlic. Cover and cook for three minutes stirring occasionally. Remove cover and add in vinegar, honey, onion powder, salt, and pepper on medium-low heat.
