Source of recipe: This recipe is from my stepfather-in-law. I was glad that he made this when we came up for the holidays. I lived on this for lunch for days. This recipe is very easy to make and will last a long time in the refrigerator. It is also very easy to change up this recipe and add different beans or vinegar to create a different taste. I hope you enjoy!

Thanks, that's a good idea too! Right now I'm pretty hooked on Del Monte's Fresh Cut canned Green Beans. They taste the way my grandma used to make them. :-)


This sounds yummy.  The only thing I would do differently would be to use frozen green beans, so they had a bit of crunch. ;)b
