    Cut Green Beans in half

    In a large deep skillet, saute' your garlic, onions, salt, pepper in the olive oil. I use popcorn salt for a buttery rich taste.

    Cook on medium high stirring constantly so the garlic does not burn. When the garlic is toasty, add in the green beans and balsamic vinegar. Cook until almost to your liking (crisp-tender). Stir frequently.
