    Caramelized onions, beans and potatoes are a sweet and fragrant topping for leaf lettuce in this warm veggie salad.

    Prep: 10 min - Cook: 20 min

    2 pounds small red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 pound green beans, cut in half
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup butter or margarine
    2 large onions, chopped (2 cups)
    1/4 cup balsamic or cider vinegar
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    6 cups bite-size pieces leaf lettuce
    Freshly gound pepper, if desired

    1. Heat 1 inch water to boiling in 4-quart Dutch oven. Add potatoes, green beans and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook about 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender; drain and set aside.
