Maria's notes: Yum! I was determined that this year I would do something with my green beans besides canning them. I decided to scour the garden to see if I could find enough to try out this salad, and I did. I LOVE IT! Haven't tried it on any of my family yet as it just finished chilling, but I'm willing to eat it all myself. I think I will keep the bacon separate and just sprinkle it on top of each serving so it stays crisp.
