Delectable Green Beans

Serves 4
You'll Need: 1 pound fresh green beans (cleaned with ends trimmed off), 1 tsp salt, 1 quart of water, 1/4 white onion (thinly diced), 1 Tbsp butter, 2 Tbsp bacon (pre-cooked and cut into lardons), 2 Tbsp walnuts (chopped), 1/4 cup gorgonzola cheese (crumbled), pinch of salt and pepper

How to Make: Bring 1 tsp salt and water to a boil. Add green beans to water and let cook for 10-15 minutes (lid on) until beans are tender. Remove beans from water and strain in cold water (to stop cooking). On stovetop in saute pan, saute onion and butter for 2-3 minutes on medium heat (until onions are translucent). Add bacon lardons to onion mixture for 2 minutes (to heat through). In large glass bowl combine green beans, onion and bacon mixture, walnuts, cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well with tongs and serve.

Note, you can use bacon bits, instead of pre-cooking bacon if desired. You'll get some good crunch and flavor either way!
