Balsamic Green Beans

Submitted by: LJMOODY1963

Introduction

This recipe is a great side dish to server with many meals. The key ingredient that makes this dish special is the balsamic vinegar. I suggets going to an Italian deli or store and getting a really good, slightly sweet balsamic vinegar. Trust me it makes all the difference.
