Green beans with bacon and pine nuts (Spanish)

2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Clove of garlic, minced
3 Shallots peeled and minced
A little over 1 pound green beans, stem end removed- blanched 3 minutes in boiling water
1/8 cup sherry vinegar
1/3-3/4 cup bacon, bite size pieces; cooked until crispy, measure after cooking
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
¼-1/2 cup toasted pine nuts

This is a very easy side dish if you have all the items ready to go into the sauté pan. Over medium heat add in the oil, garlic and shallots. Sautee2-3 minutes. Add in green beans, sherry bacon salt and pepper. Garnish with pine nuts.
