  3. Cook bacon in a frying pan until golden and crisp. Toss through beans.
  4. Combine French shallots, garlic, mustard and vinegar together in a small bowl. Mix well. Whisk in olive oil until thick and thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle ¾ of the dressing over the beans and bacon. Toss to mix well.
  5. Grate eggs over the top of the salad. Drizzle with remaining dressing. Serve immediately.
