Total Time
25 Mins
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 wedge, 1 tablespoon dressing, 1/4 cup potatoes, 1/4 cup beans, and about 1 1/2 teaspoons radishes)

The smoky bacon-mustard dressing that coats this salad is a play on Hot German Potato Salad, a summertime favorite and a classic Pennsylvania Dutch dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place onion and vinegar in a small bowl; toss to coat.

Step 2

Place potatoes in a medium saucepan; cover with water to 2 inches above potatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes or until tender. Remove potatoes from pan with a slotted spoon; cool slightly. Thinly slice potatoes. Bring water in pan to a boil. Add green beans; cook 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain. Rinse beans under cold water; drain.

Step 3

Cook bacon in a small skillet over medium heat 6 minutes or until crisp. Remove from heat. Drain vinegar from onions into skillet with bacon and drippings. Add oil, mustard, salt, and pepper, stirring with a whisk. Arrange lettuce wedges on 4 plates; top evenly with onion, potatoes, green beans, and radishes. Drizzle with vinaigrette, and sprinkle with chives.

Just okay...

Not a very memorable salad and the radish was a little "odd" in the total dish.  Would make the potato salad again, but really it's just german potato salad with green beans.  Don't need a "recipe" for that on top of a lettuce wedge.  Not enough "dressing" for the salad (and I don't like a lot of dressing so that's saying something!).  Threw this recipe away - not a keeper
