This salad is almost too simple… a few seasonal veggies tossed in ranch dressing and garnished with bacon, it requires no skill set, and a very small time commitment. Don’t let it being low-maintenance fool you though, it’s flavorful and crunchy and big hit at every barbecue you’re likely to attend. I love using buttermilk ranch dressing to toss it with but if you’re not a fan, any dressing you do like will make a great substitute.
Here’s What You’ll Need
Fresh Green Beans – washed and cut into 2″-3″ segments
Cherry or Grape Tomatoes – washed and cut in half
Bacon – cut into 3″ squares and cooked
Fresh Corn – Washed and cut off the cob
Ranch Dressing – I used a pack of hidden valley buttermilk ranch but bottle will work too
Start by prepping all your veggies
Next cook your bacon and (if you’ve got the time) make your ranch dressing.
Add all your ingredients to a large bowl
Top it off with some ranch dressing, and toss well
Store salad in refrigerator until it’s time to serve so it stays cold and crisp.
