This dressing tastes really awful. I made it twice and checked the recipe. The flavors sound like they would blend, but they didn't and it is way too salty (probably the mustard has enough salt). Anyway, it was supposed to be for Christmas dinner, but no way can I serve this.

the recipe for "Balsamic Green Beans", Southern Living 2009 is much better; these were a little more bland but they turned out okay. I will not remake this specific recipe.

I brought this dish as a side to a dinner party and everyone loved them! I used fresh green beans I bought by the pound instead of frozen. I cut the ends off and sauteed them in some olive oil until they were tender and then tossed them in the sauce. They are a great alternative to the salty bacony green beans you normally see. I will definitely make them again!
