This is an old recipe that I have had since the 70's. It is off one of those mail order recipe cards. (before the internet). You can cook the bacon in a microwave oven. (this wasn't around either). Because it is served cold it makes a great summer side dish. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine beans, onions, salad oil, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt and the pepper; toss lightly. Cover and chill.
  2. Just before serving, drain bean mixture and toss with bacon.

We loved the twist of adding bacon to an old family favorite. It was just perfect and I would not change a thing. Thanks for the post.

This was good. I omitted the onions because my boys don't like raw onions. This was easy to throw together but think I might like it warmed up better than cold. Thanks for a great recipe. Made for I Recommend Tag.
