    Green Beans with Bacon-Balsamic Vinaigrette

    2 pounds green beans
    2 bacon slices (I usually use a few more)
    1/4 cup minced shallots
    3 Tbsp. coarsely chopped almonds
    2 Tbsp. brown sugar
    1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar

    Cook green beans in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Drain well; set aside.
    Cook bacon in a small skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet. Crumble; set aside. Add shallots to bacon fat in skillet; sauté 1 minute. Add almonds; sauté 1 minute. Remove and let cool. Add sugar and vinegar; stir until sugar dissolves. Add crumbled bacon.
    Pour vinaigrette over beans, tossing gently to coat.

    Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)
