Nope...there were no left over pieces.
Thanks. I've been noticing little things like that when I cook.

Kim cooked up a big batch of fresh green beans last night that was NOT from Weight Watchers. He used the shank end of a bone-in ham, onions, garlic, and whole stick of (gasp!) butter.

How can I lose weight when my husband insists on cooking like that?!!

HOT GREEN BEAN SALAD

Ingredients:
4 slices bacon (I use more)
1/3 cup shallots or green onions (minced)(I use a full cup)
2 Tablespoons tarragon vinegar (I make my own, which is pretty strong, and use more)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (I use a lot more)
1 pound green beans, julienned (French-style cut)
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons chives or parsley, chopped (I use cilantro).

Method:
In a large cast iron skillet, fry the bacon until crisp. Drain, then break into bits. Set aside.
In the bacon fat, sauté shallots or scallions 'til tender. Stir in vinegar and mustard.
Cook the beans in boiling salted water 5 to 6 minutes. Drain the beans, pat dry and toss with the mixture in the skillet. Toss well until desired coating of the green beans is accomplished.
Season with salt and pepper (I let the person eating the dish do this, as I like very little salt but a lot of pepper).
The recipe calls for sprinkling the salad with the bacon and chives or parsley.

I put the bacon in with the skillet mixture along with the beans and stir it all up. The cilantro I put on top. Serve warm. Serves 2 to 4.

Recipe from Kona Kitchens, 1992.

pdswife, thanks for the recipe! Since DH is eating healthy these days and we both love green beans and onions, this will make a great addition.
