My grandmother’s Pennsylvania Dutch-style recipe turns plain old green beans into a tangy cross between three-bean and German potato salad. —Sharon Tipton, Casselberry, Florida

  1. Cook beans according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a 6-qt. stockpot, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. With a slotted spoon, remove bacon to paper towels; reserve drippings.
  2. In same pan, saute onions in drippings over medium heat until tender and lightly browned, 7-9 minutes. In a bowl, whisk remaining ingredients until smooth; add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Drain beans and add to warm dressing; toss and heat through. Top with bacon. Yield: 12 servings.
Not only can using frozen veggies save prep time, they’re just as healthy as fresh—sometimes even more nutritious—because they’re picked at the peak of ripeness.
