Light potato and bacon salad in a lemon dijon vinaigrette topped with bacon and hard boiled eggs.
I went to the movies three times in the last week. At every viewing I had popcorn which isn’t bad but then I cheated on my eating healthier plan by scarfing down mozzarella sticks while watching Brooklyn. Have you seen the movie? It is wonderful. I cried my eyes out and was just touched by the entire film. It’s a definite must watch!
Anyway, after so much popcorn and cheese, I needed a heavy dose of something somewhat healthy. Sometimes your body just screams for greens. And potatoes. And bacon. And egg.
This Green Bean, Potato, Bacon and Egg Salad is light but can also be a meal in itself (for two). It’s also a lighter version of my favorite salad at Saltgrass.
