Beans with Cherry Tomatoes is a favorite of my family. We love this dressed-up version of garden green beans. It's great with any meat.—Betty Brown, Buckley, Washington


  • 4 bacon strips, diced
  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted


  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. In the drippings, saute beans for 12-14 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 2-3 minutes longer. Stir in tomatoes and salt; heat through. Sprinkle with bacon and almonds. Serve immediately.
