This is exactly what I was looking for. I used it on a spinach, red onion, egg and bacon salad for a family reunion. It was perfection!

This is a delicious dressing that will dress up any salad. I just used a pinch of the brown sugar (personal preference). Next time I will add the oil over the salad last, instead of into the onions, it sort of got lost as it coated them. Great flavor!

The only difference between this recipe and the one I make is that I don't put sugar in mine. It is fabulous. Especially on strong-tasting greens like spinach, escarole, or curly endive. Mmmmmm!

This dressing was too oily for my taste. The flavor of the bacon grease was a bit too strong.

So rich and delicious, no salad could possibly be boring with this dressing! I used white onion when I made this and it didn't seem to matter. So easy to make, especially if you use pre-cooked bacon like I did (just crisp for 20-30 seconds in the pan). Either way it's a winner!!

Wow! you have converted me Cookin -jo, I now love salads. This is so delicious. The dressing is great. I love the contrasting tastes tart sweet, tangy, not over powering. I served it over romain lettuce, crotons, bacon, sliced strawberries, sweet tomatoes, diced mushrooms, and red onions. It was superb.

I made this really great dressing after viewing Paula's photo. Made with fresh spinach, red bell peppers, pecans and mixed the crumbled bacon into the dressing. Freshly ground black pepper to top it off. See photo at Herbed Grilled Catfish. Delicious recipe, Jo, thanks for posting.

As the into says "sweet, tart, bacony and oniony" but it doesn't mention delicious and it is. I did not have red onions so I put in some sweet white onion. Served this over a fresh spinach salad made with dried cranberries, toasted pecans and the crumbled bacon. I plan to make this dressing again. Thanks.
