Fabulous. My family will never again let me serve a can of beans without this dressing!

Make sure you really like vinegar before you make this! My Easter guests and I found this recipe acceptable, but too heavy on the vinegar. (Even my sister, who likes vinegar, found it a bit overpowering.) The bacon was a delicious touch. I doubt I'll make it again, but it was worth trying once.

After reading previous reviews I decided to try this with less vinegar. I cut it back to less than a 1/4 cup and the dish still tasted a little too vinegary. Hubby's not a green bean fan and while he did say the the vinegar was a little too overwhelming he did wind up eating seconds. This was an easy dish to prepare and the overall taste was good. I'll try this again with even less vinegar.

I made this for the holiday and no one really liked it. The vinegar was too much. A friend of mine makes this using very little vinegar and she said it tastes much better that way.

Very unique and a great combination of flavors.

My eggs started to curdle too, so I ended up starting all over again. Fortunately I had saved my bacon fat. I'll go back to Sweet and Sour Green Beans on this site.

Not so great. Too vinegary too--I should have read the other reviews before making this.
