For a vegetarian version of this side dish, simply omit the bacon.


For the vinaigrette, whisk together all ingredients in a bowl; season with salt and pepper.

For the salad, cover potatoes with cold salted water in a pot. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove potatoes with a slotted spoon and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Pour ¾ cup vinaigrette over warm potatoes; let cool 2030 minutes.

Boil haricots verts in same pot of water until tender, 34 minutes; drain. Transfer haricots verts to a bowl and toss with ¼ cup vinaigrette; let cool 2030 minutes.

Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.

Gently stir potatoes, scallions, tarragon, and remaining ¼ cup vinaigrette into haricots verts. Season salad with salt and pepper and top with bacon.
