Green Bean Recipe
Have you started organizing your Thanksgiving menu? Do you stick with the same foods year after year or do you like to try new dishes?
This green bean salad has been making an appearance on our Thanksgiving table for over 20 years! My mom made this recipe from one of her Food & Wine Magazines back in the late 80’s and I have continued to make it for my family.
The original recipe tops the beans with bacon, which is DELICIOUS, but with so many other foods being served for Thanksgiving dinner I use Prosciutto, which adds the same delicious salty flavor that bacon has, but we’re skipping the greasy clean up!
There is nothing like fresh green beans! I like them steamed just slightly so that they hold their form and have a nice crunch to them when you take a bite! Don’t expect leftovers.
This platter of green beans is always is cleaned by the end of the evening!
