Lovely, me and partner both liked and he's not a fan of green beans but we do both love vinegar :) omitted the almonds though as I'm not a nut fan and was perfect for me!

Hubby isn't a big vinegar fan but i would make this again. Nice flavor.

Really good, I omitted the almonds because my husband doesn't like any sort of nuts in his food. I used 4 slices of bacon instead of 2, more bacon never hurts!
