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.
I love a good salad and I’m always looking for an easy salad recipe to make for the holidays. We visit multiple family members on Christmas Eve and Christmas and it would be difficult to take a side dish that needed to be heated in the oven so I always volunteer to bring a nice salad. This bean salad is the perfect holiday side dish!
This salad combines all of my favorite flavors and the dressing is so easy to make. I keep the dressing in a mason jar in the refrigerator so I have it for all my favorite salads. And, the best thing about this recipe is you can make it ahead of time. This is such a huge time saver. The beans won’t wilt so this salad can be stored overnight in the refrigerator. Then, toss in the dressing, top with sliced almonds and Stella shaved Parmesan cheese, and your salad is ready to be served.
The crunch of the beans and almonds with bacon, fresh Parmesan cheese, and the balsamic vinegar is the perfect combination. I’m going to have to start using beans in my salad more often. And, let’s talk about using adding fresh Parmesan cheese to all my favorite recipes. What a different this makes! I used Stella® Parmesan shavings because it’s fresh and a brand that I can always trust to bring the best flavor to my recipes.
