Can I just say that I’m so happy we live in a world where something called “bacon dressing” exists? I mean…what is this life? The fact that we can douse our salad in hot bacon dressing and call it a meal makes my heart the happiest it’s ever been.
This takes dressing to a whole new level. We literally use the fat rendered from the bacon as the oil in this dressing. Is that even legal? It’s happening.
What we end up with is the most savory, complex, bacon-y (word? Should be), slightly sweet, and slightly tangy dressing that is staring you deeply in the eyes and BEGGING you to pour it liberally over any and every salad you can find.
Here’s the details on this delicious combo:
First what we’re going to do is chop up some bacon and cook it until the fat has rendered and the bacon is crispy. From there, we set aside the bacon and add the rest of our goodies.
Rest of our goodies = some garlic and red onion sauteed in the bacon fat and then apple cider vinegar, whole grain mustard, and a little sweetener whisked in at the end.
Throw some of that crispy bacon back in there and you’re ready to dress any salad and knock it up approximately 10,000 notches on the scale of deliciousness.…
