Green Beans with Balsamic Pepper Relish – This bright, beautiful side dish will steal the spotlight at dinner, thanks to the sweet, tangy balsamic bell pepper relish. It’s incredible! (Vegan, Paleo & Whole30 approved!)
Confession: I usually don’t think that much about side dishes on weeknights. We tend to stick with a simple salad, some fresh or roasted veggies, or fresh fruit. Maybe some rice or a cornbread muffin tossed in here or there.
But around the holidays? I’m ALL IN. At Thanksgiving, I’d completely skip the turkey in favor of the sides–sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, rolls, salads, veggies, fruit, you name it. The same thing goes when we’re having a simple main dish. If our main dish is something simple (cod or salmon, chicken & apple sausage, rotisserie chicken, etc.) I try to step up my side dish game.
These green beans with balsamic pepper relish are one of my favorites. They look *gorgeous* on the table, and taste even better. Plus, you can easily serve them for holidays or weeknights. They really deliver without much added fuss!
