Green Beans with Bacon Vinaigrette

Even the most extensively planned holiday meal occasionally doesn’t always go as planned. When I first started hosting holidays, I would either forget an ingredient or the turkey would be ready to slice when I hadn’t even cleaned the vegetables. My family would be laughing and telling stories in the other room, while I was having a full blown panic attack in my kitchen. I sent my daughter running down to the freezer to grab frozen vegetables more than a few times. If I managed to throw microwaved corn and green beans on the table at the same time everything else was ready, it was a win in my book. I learned a lot in those first few years. These green beans with bacon vinaigrette are delicious and very simple to make.

They are also a stunning addition to the holiday table. Long green beans covered with vinaigrette and sprinkled with bacon, looks like it came right out of a magazine.

During those first few years, I learned the value of prepping ahead of time. This dish is no different. Clean and trim your green beans and cook off your bacon a night or two before. Just don’t forget to save two tablespoons of bacon fat for the vinaigrette.

Pair these green beans with another vegetable or let it hold it’s own with your Thanksgiving table staples. You will be glad that you did.
