Green Beans with Bacon Vinaigrette

I think rather than making the typical green bean casserole with mushroom soup for Thanksgiving, this would be a new twist on it.

Ingredients:

  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 lbs. green beans, trimmed
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 shallots, sliced or you could substitute green onions
  • 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. whole grain mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon salt. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool; transfer to a serving bowl.

Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then break into pieces.

Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings from the skillet and return to medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the vinegar, mustard, oil, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add to the green beans, along with the bacon, and toss to combine.

Love this recipe, Laniegirl! It's going to be my bean dish choice for the holidays! :-) It would also make a yummy salad by not cooking the green beans. I adore raw green beans!
