11530848796cL13p    1188260202NZ10cj   Pair this quick and easy side dish with grilled pork chops and a tossed salad for a satisfying holiday meal.  (Also, something delicious besides the same hotdogs and hamburgers.)  Aside from being a tasty dish, it is packed with vitamin C and fiber.  It adds a new spin to an old reliable, namely potatoes, and has a low-point value for those that follow Weight Watcher’s.

Hungarian-Style Potatoes and Green Beans

1 cup red potatoes, halved and sliced

1 cup fresh green bean

1/2 cup onion, quartered and sliced
