Step 1

In a large saucepan, cover potatoes with 2 inches salted water. Bring to a simmer and cook until potatoes are just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain thoroughly.

Step 2

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high; add potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook, mashing potatoes slightly, until golden brown in spots, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking for another 5 or so minutes.

Step 3

Transfer to a serving dish and keep warm.

Step 4

Add bacon to skillet. Cook until bacon is browned, about 3 minutes. (If the bacon exudes alot of grease, leave only enough grease to cook the green beans).

Step 5

Add green beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until bright green and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.

Step 6

Add to potatoes along with lemon juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper and toss gently to combine.

So who wouldn't love this assortment of ingredients? Lovely flavors and we enjoyed so much that we had it two nights in a row!

There is nothing about this recipe that I don't like! It was pretty easy to throw together, the house smelled amazing while it was being prepared, and the whole family ate it without any fuss! It was delicious! I made as directed, but had to substitute the red potatoes for small yellow potatoes (it's what the store substituted for my grocery pick-up).

Yum! My absolute favourite way to have green bean salad!! So easy to make but yet so tasty. The only change I made was to use lime juice instead of lemon because that's what I had. Thanks for sharing this winner! Made for FYC
