"Sweet bacon vinaigrette lovingly caressing green beans. Discovered this combination during Thanksgiving dinner when a bottle of bacon vinaigrette was dropped onto my plate. The result was delicious. I like to add a bit of Cheddar. Bacon, green beans, and Cheddar just goes really well together for me."

  1. Make an ice bath by filling a large pot with ice and water; set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the green beans in the boiling water until slightly tender yet crisp, about 3 minutes; drain. Immediately plunge the green beans into the ice bath to stop them from cooking further. Drain and set aside.
  3. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the onions to the bacon and continue cooking until the onions begin to caramelize and turn golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the green beans, red wine vinegar, and sugar; cook and stir until the sugar is dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes.

this was ok, but I didn't care for the extra tangy tastew with the vinegar. I would cut back on that. However, I can tell you I did cut back on the bacon grease and that might have affected it.

This is a delightful twist to boring ole' green beans. I used turkey bacon and sliced sweet Maui onions and actually love these carmelized! Another reviewer, Linda Mclean, suggested apple cider ...

cooked everything together. came out great. kids liked it.

Made this with fresh yellow beans from my local farmers market. It was wonderful.

Wonderful! I nailed it the second time around. Vinegar had just a little bite and beans were perfect! Amazing complement to my grilled bacon-wrapped Elk Backstrap Filet Mignon! I urge people...

I just wasn't that impressed with this dish. I love the combination of ingredients and followed the recipe exactly but something was missing for me, not enough flavor. Sorry. I drained off the b...

Great recipe! I've made green beans with bacon before, but the red wine vinegar adds a lot. I steamed the green beans and skipped the parsley.
