Growing up, Easter dinner was all about cold meats and salads. Growing up partly in the Ukranian tradition of my mom’s family, we often followed the traditions of her Eastern European roots at Easter. Truth be told,

Easter was never one of my favorite foodie holidays. Mainly because everything was served cold or at room temperature so it could be blessed at church the day before.

Food memories play an important role in all of our lives. One dish that I always looked forward to, no matter what the occasion, is my mom’s Green Bean and Bacon Salad. Living on a 900-acre farm,

I jump at every opportunity to make this dish once our own green beans are in season. I absolutely love green beans. They are hands-down my favorite veggie! …And, this recipe also has bacon in it. What more can I say, except everything is better with bacon!

Have you started planning your Easter menu yet? This dish always made an appearance on our Easter table. Mom still makes it to this day. Her recipe is slightly sweeter than mine, however.

I have tweaked my version over the years and cut back on the sugar used in the dressing. Another plus to this recipe is that it can be served cold or hot!

How To Make Green Bean Salad

After you wash your beans, chop off the ends. I then blanch them in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes. While the beans are cooking, you can slice the tomatoes and shallots. When the beans are done cooking, remove from the pot and place them in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. This will also keep that beautiful green color too.

Now you will want to saute the bacon medium-high heat. Add the shallots to the bacon once it starts to get crispy. When done, drain the bacon grease out of the pan. Add the bacon and cooked green beans back into the pan and give a quick toss so the beans and bacon can get to know one another better. The beans will pick up any remaining bacon grease and bits.
