I love fresh, home-canned green beans for this recipe, but store-bought canned green beans work just as well. And if you have fresh green beans from your garden, just cook them until they are soft, then proceed with the recipe instructions. Delicious!
Green Beans Side Dish
You know how I love strong flavors, and this green beans side dish suits my tastes perfectly. If offers up a sweet, vinegar-ish taste, but very light and fresh. For this recipe, green beans work best with Vidalia onions. Vidalia is my onion of choice because it will give an added sweetness to the flavor mix.
