  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard

Directions:

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and fill with water, covering the potatoes with at least 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil.

  3. Meanwhile, place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until evenly browned. Drain and cool bacon slices on paper towels; crumble.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, olive oil, mayonnaise and mustard. Add potatoes and green beans; stir to coat. Top with bacon and green onions and season with salt and black pepper if desired (stir once to incorporate). Serve and enjoy!
