Fresh green beans, real bacon, and a squirt of lemon juice to taste. Added some zucchini and chopped onion because I had it to use. Sautéed chopped bacon in a skillet before adding the vegetables, cooking just till fork tender while still maintaining their vibrant green color. Fresh, beautiful and spring-like.

I was looking for something to do with French Style green beans and stumbled upon this recipe and decided, if it had 4 1/2 stars, it had to be good. What I didn't realize was that only 2 other people had reviewed it. Didn't like this at all and none of my 7 or husband did either. The main taste is lemon. :P Will NOT make again.
