Miso Maple Green Bean Salad with Bacon

At an early age, one of my best friends instilled in me the importance of having a green bean dish in a Thanksgiving dinner. In her family, there are 6 staples to their Thanksgiving meal: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, canned cranberry sauce (always canned), and pumpkin pie. That green bean casserole was a heck of a doozy to make, but it always tasted phenomenal.
