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.

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.

Very nice! Tasting it shortly after mixing, I was afraid it would be too sharp for my taste, but the chilling time (for me it was overnight) mellowed the taste beautifully. When using canned or frozen beans, I tend to prefer french-cut green beans, so that is what I used. I recommend this; it's easy and yummy.
