Ingredients

Salad
  • 4 slices bacon chopped

Instructions

Salad
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  2. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Fill a medium saucepan with water and set over medium high heat. Add a little salt and bring to a full boil.
  3. Add the green beans to the saucepan and cook until tender crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the beans to the ice water to halt the cooking process.
  4. Drain the beans and transfer to a tea towel to pat dry, then transfer to a salad bowl. Add the tomatoes, bacon, and feta.
Dijon Vinaigrette
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a jar with a sealable lid. Shake well to combine.
  2. Pour over the salad before serving or pass at the table to allow everyone to dress their own.
