This Belgian salad with Green Beans and Bacon is best in late spring and summer with new potatoes and fresh green beans.
For a vegetarian / vegan version, marinate the equivalent amount of tofu in a smoky sauce (or even tamari). If you don't have anything smoky, try adding a little bit of Lapsang tea (ground preferably) to your sauce. Note: a little Lapsang tea goes a long way so add a tiny amount at first and then add more if needed. Remove excess sauce and cook the tofu 1-2 minutes on each side until brown. Use this tofu instead of the bacon in the recipe.
