Bacon Vinaigrette Dressing

This salad dressing is delicious on ANYTHING!
I first fell in love with this concoction on a "Leftover Easter Salad" with spinach, asparagus, ham, hard-boiled egg, and sliced radishes.

A quick salad with apples, walnuts and thinly sliced red onion tossed with Bacon Vinaigrette Dressing made me realize how diverse this savory dressing is. Experiment with your own salad and send me your favorite.


Bacon Vinaigrette Dressing
4 slices of bacon, diced
1 T dijon mustard
1 T stone ground mustard
2 T honey
1/2 clove chopped garlic
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. olive oil
~2 T reserved bacon drippings

Cook diced bacon until crisp. Set aside bacon on a paper towel to cool. Reserve bacon drippings.

Combine all other ingredients into a jar and shake well.
Douse your salad of choice liberally with this nectar and sprinkle crisp bacon atop salad.

Enjoy!
