Mediterranean Green Beans with Golden Raisins
-Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat.
- While the water is heating up, heat a large pan over medium heat. Once hot, place the bacon slices in the pan. Cook until crispy, turning often (about 6-8 minutes). Remove bacon from pan and set pan, including bacon fat, aside for later use.
-When water begins to boil, add beans and simmer for 3-4 minutes until tender. Drain water from pot.
- Return the pan with reserved bacon fat to medium heat. Add garlic, sliced onion and green beans. Cook, stirring occasionally for 6-8 minutes, until beans begin to brown.
-While the beans are cooking and the bacon has cooled enough to handle, crumble the bacon.
-After beans have started to brown, add bacon, pistachios, raisins, oregano, basil and dill. Stir well and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper and serve!
