Balsamic Honey Glazed Green Beans & Tomatoes

Balsamic Honey Glazed Green Beans & Tomatoes

In general, during the holidays, we normally attend so many family gatherings that I rarely cook the main part of the holiday meal. We usually just bring a side dish to accompany my mom’s ham or my mother-in-law’s turkey. I am always trying to think of simple, nutritious sides to take that I know my kids will also enjoy. For this holiday season, I plan to serve these Balsamic Honey Glazed Green Beans and Tomatoes.

Doesn’t it always seem like your family uses those holiday gatherings as a place to “test out” new recipes? Our family is no different. Sometimes those test dishes are amazing and sometimes they are barely touched. Because of the potential for these test recipes to be flops, the sides that we bring to any gathering have to be a pleasing option for my picky kids.

My kids {and husband} are such picky eaters, they rarely eat more than turkey and mashed potatoes. Even though my kids may not eat the tomatoes, these Balsamic Honey Glazed Green Beans & Tomatoes are enjoyed by my picky family and everyone else. They are sweet and tart with a hint of heat from the red pepper.

You can omit the green beans and then store those delicious glazed tomatoes for a salad at lunch during the week.

If you decide to serve with dinner, use half the green beans and tomatoes.

    Hi Catherine, Honey and balsamic go together wonderfully. I use a similar coating to roast winter veg and that goes down well too. Pinning.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
