French green beans with Parma ham

    20 min

    A lovely side dish or starter of French green beans and Parma ham. I tend to serve this with Italian dishes such as veal or pork saltimbocca or marsala along with rosemary potatoes. Also nice cold as a salad for BBQ's.

    1. Cut the beans in half. Heat a frying pan with the olive oil to medium heat and add the beans. Stir occassionally so as to not burn the beans. After 9-10 minutes add the ham.
    2. Add seasoning and continue to stir. Once beans are tender, turn off the heat and add the vinegar.
    3. Place into a serving plate and serve.


    Make in advance and serve as a cold salad with other salads for a BBQ.


    Also nice with Prosciutto or replace with chopped cherry tomatoes.
