Bean and Bacon Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by bshemyshua

When you want a salad for the summer that is just a little bit different. But will still complement chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and all those other summer main dishes try this. I found this on, 2 years ago and passed it along to a friend, who in turn took it to a pot luck where the recipe was passed around again! Hope you enjoy this as much as we have.

This a very different salad. I am not a bean salad fan, but this one I could eat again. With the delicious dressing this is a refreshing change from the same old slaw. This would be a great vegetarian dish to take to a potluck.
