Bring a pot of water to boil and trim green beans. Add green beans to pot when water is at a rolling boil. Cook for 5 minutes or until green beans are bright green and tender. Once finished remove from heat and set aside.
In a 12" skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Slice onion into thin strips and halve the cherry tomatoes.
Add the onions to the skillet when hot and saute for 3 minutes or until onions become translucent. Add balsamic vinegar to skillet and stir to evenly coat onions. Cook for another 2 minutes or until balsamic vinegar has reduced.
Add ground turkey to skillet along with salt and thyme. Brown and stir to coat with seasonings. This will take about 10 minutes.
When turkey is almost fully browned add green beans and tomatoes. Cook for an additional 5 minutes or until tomatoes and green beans are cooked through.
Serve hot or store in fridge for up to 3 days.
If you do not want to blanch the green beans, they can be added with the ground turkey. Though they will lose their bright color and crisp texture cooked this way.
