1 H 15 MIN
4 to 6 servings



  1. Place beets in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and simmer gently for about 1 hour or until beets are tender. Drain and place in cold water. Peel and cut each beet into 8 wedges. Place on a large serving platter.
  2. Meanwhile, in a skillet, brown bacon in 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of oil until crisp. Drain a little fat. Add green beans and mix thoroughly. Scatter beans and bacon over beets.
  3. In a small bowl, combine balsamic vinegar and remaining olive oil. Drizzle over salad. Adjust seasoning. Serve with a pork roast, warm or cold.


Even if we continue to love sliced bacon, our test kitchen staff loves working with bacon slabs. A thick piece of bacon that you cut the way you want. It is also very inexpensive. If you can’t find a bacon slab, just use regular sliced bacon.
