A salty-sweet side dish sure to please veggie-lovers and sweet-tooths alike! I can normally find a good-sized bag of fresh green beans at a fruit stand or farmer's market for about a dollar.

I made these for Easter. Very big hit, although I used about 2 lbs. of green beans and only 1/2 cup of brown sugar-no white sugar. I think that was a good move as I think it would have been way too sweet otherwise.

YUM!! I used chopped almonds instead. I also added some finely diced shallots and balsamic vinegar. This is an excellent side dish!!

I reduced the sugar by half and added balsamic reduction. It turned out awesome!!!
