Balsamic Pomegranate Green Beans

I discovered this marvelous recipe on of all places!  We were blessed with green beans from the co-op this weekend and I was so pleased with how quickly this comes together.

Balsamic Pomegranate Green Beans

1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
1/3 c. balsamic vinegar
2 T. olive oil
¼ c. fresh pomegranate seeds
¼ c. crumbled feta cheese
2 T. chopped walnuts

Bring a medium pot of salt water to a boil. Add the beans and cook until bright green and tender, but not soft, about 4-5 minutes. Drain the beans in a colander. Quickly rinse the beans under cold running water and set aside.
Heat the balsamic vinegar in a non-stick saut√© pan on medium high heat for 2 minutes.  The sauce should be the consistency of thick syrup. Whisk in the olive oil, and remove the pan from heat.
Transfer the beans from the colander to a large serving tray. Evenly sprinkle the beans with pomegranate seeds, feta cheese and the walnuts.  Drizzle the reduced vinegar all over the beans.  Serve it forth!

Those look really good. I make my green beans like my asparagus with olive oil, salt, pepper, parmesan cheese and lemon. I have never tried to do anything with feta. It looks like it might over shadow anything else with the meal :) YUM!!!
