Bean and Bacon Salad

I got some locally grown green beans and wax beans recently. I wanted to use some of them for a salad, but not the traditional bean salad.  I know how much I enjoy frying a little bacon and tossing in some beans so I used that as inspiration for this dish. I added a little sweet pepper, too. It was really simple and tasted so good. Here is what I did.






Bean and Bacon Salad

3-4 c. cooked beans- green, wax or mixed, cut into 1-inch pieces

4-5 slices bacon, cooked, cooled and crumbled

1 sweet pepper, seeded and diced

1/2 c. minced sweet onion, optional

 1/2  c. cider vinegar

1/4 c. oil- I used olive oil

1/4 c. sugar- or to taste

2 T. fresh chopped parsely

1 t. thyme

salt and pepper to taste

dash of hot sauce

Combine beans with bacon and onion, if adding, and set aside. Combine remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour over the beans and toss to coat evenly. Cover and chill 30 minutes or longer before serving. Serves 5-6.
