Steps (4)

  • Step 1
    Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add string beans, and cook for 5 minutes. Drain the beans in a colander and immediately pour cold water over them, which will help set the green color and prevent them from cooking further.
  • Step 2
    Toss the beans with the olive oil.
  • Step 3
    Meanwhile, heat a large pan over medium-low heat. Add the green beans and ranch dressing to the pan and saute the mixture for approximately 3-5 minutes, until crisp tender.
  • Step 4
    Toss the crumbled bacon into the dish right before you serve it, so that the bacon stays crisp.
  • For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flavorful Salad Being vegetarians, I had to make this without the bacon bits. I know bacon adds a unique flavor, but we still found this to be quite delicious and the whole family enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy. More proof that everything is better with bacon. I personally prefer to use butter instead of the olive oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who doesn't love bacon? Everyone serves green beans at Thanksgiving, but it's the bacon that really makes this dish. The smell of bacon cooking is heavenly. You can't go wrong with this dish.
