This is fantastic! I first saw this recipe in Bon Appetit magazine, the January 2006 edition. I prepare the bacon ahead of time, and sometimes add cherry or grape tomatoes, halved. The hot sauce gives it a nice kick! Thanks for posing, Rangel!

  2. Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until golden brown and beginning to crisp. Arrange lettuce on plates. Spoon dressing over.
  3. Using slotted spoon, transfer warm bacon from skillet onto salads, dividing equally. Garnish with red onions and candied nuts.
