"Balsamic vinegar adds zing to these colorful sauteed veggies that cook in a flash," says Chris Kallies of Oldsmar, Florida. "Trim the beans and julienne the pepper ahead to make this dish in a snap at the last minute."


  • 1/4 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup julienned sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute beans and red pepper in oil for 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in the vinegar, basil and pepper.

    The perfect quick veggie dish for a work night meal. Good flavors but I did add a pinch of salt.

    This looked awesome on the table and tasted great. We ended up chopping the peppers in 'largeish' chunks as we were using smaller beans. Still looked great. This will definitely be used plently around our house.
