    Vicki in CT's Note:

    From Southern Living. Great salad dressing. The directions state to puree in blender, however, it works just as well simply shaking in a jar.

      Cook bacon in large skillet until crisp; remove bacon and drain on paper towels. Reserve 2 T drippings in skillet.

      FYI the cooked bacon is not actually used in this recipe, but you can top your salad with it if desired.

      This was just delicious and really made the salad. I made it exactly as written and it came together very quickly. Very easy to make and superb with spinach, blue cheese, toasted pecans, and hard boiled egg. I crumbled the bacon on top and got rave reviews from the entire table.

      This brought back lots of good memories. One of the first "gourmet" recipes I ever made was a hot bacon dressing, over fresh baby spinach, when I was about 15 or 16 years old. It's been my favorite dressing ever since but I haven't made it in years. This recipe, by FAR, is superior to any other I've tasted. I didn't blenderize it because I happen to love the look of grainy mustard & I think that the aged balsamic vinegar just puts this over the top. The entire combination was melodic. I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for posting, Vicki! Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes! :)

      I love spinach salad with hot bacon vinaigrette dressing. My mom has always just used the bacon drippings, bacon and a little vinegar which was very good. But this recipe is just awesome!! I think the combination of the mustard, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and oj is the key. Divine! This is how I will make our fresh spinach salad from now on. Thanks Vicki for a great PAC Spring '09 and this keeper of a recipe!
