Ingredients

2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans

2 slices bacon

1/2 cup red bell pepper strips

1/2 cup thin onion wedges

1/2 cup whole cashews

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the teriyaki sauce, honey, and butter.
  2. Fill a bowl with cold water and ice cubes.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the lemon juice. Drop in the beans and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until beans are bright green. Drain the beans in a colander and then plunge them into the iced water. Drain again and set aside.
  4. In a skillet, cook the bacon until very crispy, crumble and set aside. Saute the bell pepper and onion in the hot bacon fat for 2 minutes. Add the beans, cashews, and bacon to the skillet. Add the teriyaki-honey sauce and toss gently.
