Tangy Bacon Salad Dressing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Manda

This is a very flavorful salad dressing that is wonderful on fresh green salads. A little bit of it goes a long way, too. Use salt sparingly when seasoning, as you probably will not need much, if any at all.

There were 7 of us at dinner last night, and this was a major hit! The one vegetarian in the group begged me for the recipe. The surprising thing, though, was all the enthusiastic comments from guys who are usually much more interested in the steak than the salad! I made two minor deviations. First, I kept the bacon separate since the dressing should keep a good while and I didn't want to worry about the meat spoiling before it all got used. Secondly, I added a generous splash of good-quality balsamic vinegar to the white vinegar specified just to give it a little more "oomph". Whisked it vigorously for a minute or two, and it was a perfect consistency. (Didn't 'separate' after sitting in the fridge overnight either!) Thanks so much for sharing, Manda. Now I'm dreaming of fresh-picked lettuce and wedges of homegrown tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs and slices of grilled chicken and a big glob of Russian dressing on top...... :)
