This green bean dish is easy and yummy. It'll go along side any main dish you throw at it.
Dice the bacon and get it into a skillet to start cooking. Get the pieces as crispy as you'd like, then remove them to a paper towel to soak up some of the fat.
Bring a medium-sized pot of water to a low boil. Make sure it's big enough to hold the green beans and cover them with water when you're ready to put them in.
Dice the onion and sweat it in a pan with a little olive oil over medium high heat. Remove the onions when they start to become translucent.
In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, onion, garlic and salt.
Put the green beans into the pot of boiling water. Cook time depends on your preference here: 2 minutes will leave them with a little crunch. 3 minutes will soften them a bit more. 4 minutes will over cook them.
NOTE: An ice bath is optional here. When I cook the green beans for 2 minutes, I never need the ice bath.
Remove your green beans from the boiling water and add them to the mayonnaise mixture. Toss to coat.
Add your green beans to a serving bowl or put them straight onto the plate.
Garnish the top with your nice, crispy bacon (if you didn't snack on all of it while you were wrapping up the recipe).
