This green bean salad is perhaps the most flavorful salad I’ve ever tasted. The bacon does all the work in providing such a bold and smoky flavor. If you love bacon, you will love love love this salad. It’s a very quick salad that doesn’t require much prep work and it still tastes amazing the next day. I almost want to say it tastes even better after it’s been sitting for a while because all the flavors blend together better. Although there is a handful of bacon in it, we can pretend it’s “healthy” since there’s so many green beans. It sure makes me feel better about eating it 🙂
