For all of those summer barbecues where you need a side dish to bring that doesn’t take long to make and can be prepped mostly in advance, look no further than this spiralized salad.

It’s simple, it uses up those spring and summer green beans, and who doesn’t love salty bacon and feta? If you want to change it up, use goat cheese instead of feta or try turkey bacon in place of pork bacon.

The spiralized bell peppers are key – slicing them this way ensures there’s a bit of bell pepper in each bite, as opposed to diced bell peppers, where they all fall to the bottom of the serving dish!

If you’re vegetarian, omit the bacon completely and sub in some crispy barbecue chickpeas (you can buy them premade) or some coconut bacon or some toasted chopped almonds. Otherwise, some cooked red quinoa would be nice for protein and texture, too.

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time25 mins


  • 2 strips bacon
  • 12 oz green beans
  • 2 red bell peppers Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small lemon juiced
  • 1/2 tablespoon country Dijon mustard grainy mustard

Immediately add in the bell peppers to the steamer basket and just let steam in remaining heat (no need to turn the heat back on.)
  • Meanwhile, prepare the dressing. Combine all the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and honey in the bottom of a large mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper, and whisk together. Set aside.
  • Once everything is done cooking (green beans, bell peppers, and bacon), add them to the bowl with the prepare dressing and toss well. Add the feta and toss once more. Serve.
