Fabulous. My family will never again let me serve a can of beans without this dressing!


Make sure you really like vinegar before you make this! My Easter guests and I found this recipe acceptable, but too heavy on the vinegar. (Even my sister, who likes vinegar, found it a bit overpowering.) The bacon was a delicious touch. I doubt I'll make it again, but it was worth trying once.


After reading previous reviews I decided to try this with less vinegar. I cut it back to less than a 1/4 cup and the dish still tasted a little too vinegary. Hubby's not a green bean fan and while he did say the the vinegar was a little too overwhelming he did wind up eating seconds. This was an easy dish to prepare and the overall taste was good. I'll try this again with even less vinegar.
