Bacon, Tomato, and Parmesan Bean Salad – A delicious and hearty salad full of fresh veggies and tossed in a delicious balsamic and olive oil dressing.  Top it with almonds and Parmesan cheese for a delicious salad everyone will love.


  • 45 cups of beans (green and yellow)
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 5 strips of bacon
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Stella freshly shaved Parmesan cheese
  • Chopped almonds
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cook bacon in a skillet until crispy. Drain the fat then cut bacon into small bits. Set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and yellow wax beans to the water and blanch for about 2 – 3 minutes (until the beans are just barely cooked through, but still crisp).
  3. Drain beans after they are barely cooked through and still a little crisp. Transfer into ice water to stop them from cooking.
  4. To make the dressing: combine olive oil, balsamic, Italian seasoning, honey, salt and pepper in a small jar with a lid and mix well.
  5. Place beans, onion, cherry tomatoes, and cucumber in a large salad bowl. Pour in some of the dressing and toss to coat. Sprinkle in bacon, sliced almonds, and Parmesan cheese and toss to combine.
  6. Enjoy!
