Green Bean Pasta Salad with bacon & pecans
A smoky pasta salad tossed with a sweet, creamy dressing, bacon, and fresh green beans makes a perfect accompaniment to a zippy grilled chicken.
Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions, adding green beans in the last 2 minutes; drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again. Transfer pasta and green beans to a large bowl.
Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
Whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar for the dressing; season with salt and pepper.
Toss pasta and green beans with pecans, onion, bacon, and dressing.
