Looking for a way to dress up fresh green beans in a flash? Try the tasty medley of flavors in this easy recipe. If you don't have sherry vinegar for the tangy sauce, try using cider or wine vinegar instead. —Judy Ferril, Shorewood, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 21, 2012

This recipe is a keeper! Rave reviews from my dinner guests. I omitted the vinegar (my husband thinks all vinegars are kryptonite) and added 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano and a scant tablespoon of dried parsley. This was easy to do for guests. I set everything up ahead of time by chopping the veggies into the skillet and measuring the seasonings in a separate prep bowl. Then it was just a quick job at the stove putting it together just before serving.

This is simple and delicious. It was a nice change over my old stand-by, green beans almandine. Once the red pepper and onion is cut up, this dish is very quick to throw together. I brought it to a potluck that had lamb as a main dish and dinner guests gave it a thumbs up.

Very tasty, and pretty easy too. Paired it with Turkey Scallopini from Healthy Cooking, and it was delicious! A keeper...I love new side dish recipes.

This is delicious! I didn't make any modifications. I also thought it looked great presentation wise. I can't wait to make it for dinner guests or for the holidays.
