Green Beans with Maple Vinaigrette

by Katie on March 27, 2013

Wow! That’s all I can say about these delicious Green Beans with Maple Vinaigrette. They taste so much fancier than plain old green beans, but take no time at all whip together. The maple flavor with the green beans just goes together so nicely.

This side dish would make a great addition to your ham this Easter Sunday!  If green beans aren’t your thing, you may like… The Best Macaroni and Cheese, Orange Fluff Jello Salad, Party Potato Salad, Twice Baked Potatoes, or Broccoli Salad.  Oh, how I wish I could eat them all this Easter. :)

I love fresh green beans. I bet the maple flavor is really good with them.
