Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is great for a potluck. In Iowa, potlucks and funerals often have many jello based salads, so a good vegetable salad that is great at room temperature is a favorite. This dish is always placed on the family table at a funeral. And for all of you that don't have any idea about rural funerals, that is the ultimate compliment to a recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 medioum potatoes, cooked and cubed. Preferably new red potatoes.
1 large can cut green beans, drained, or a quart from the freezer
2 T. bacon fat
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. sugar
1 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/8 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. dry mustard
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 T. minced onion, preferably red
1/3 c. mayonnaise


Mix all the ingrediants except the bacon, onion and mayonnaise in a 2 quart casserole. Heat, uncovered at 325 degres F. for 20 minutes or microwave 5 minutes. When completely heated, add bacon, onion and mayonnaise, tossing before serving. If you are taking this dish to a potluck, heat onsite and toss with the bacon, onion and mayonnaise right before serving.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I made this for a family dinner and everyone loved it! I have been making a German bean salad for many years now and I never thought anything could replace that. I was wrong, everyone said they loved this just as much. I was taking care of my granddaughter the day I made this and she loved helping, she had to taste test the potatoes plain, then dipped in the dressing ingredients, then the green beans dipped in the dressing. I think she had a full serving before it actually made it to the table. I sent some home for my DIL who could not make it, I actually had to take it out before we were done eating or she wouldn't have gotten any! Thanks for a new family favorite recipe!

I can not wait to try this recipe, I know my whole family will love this, thank you so much for posting this recipe!
