Green Bean & Bacon Salad

Salad Sensation

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.

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
