Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Vicki in CT

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

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook bacon in large skillet until crisp; remove bacon and drain on paper towels. Reserve 2 T drippings in skillet.
  2. Cook shallots and garlic in hot drippings for 3 minutes, or until tender. Add brown sugar and cook stirring constantly for one minute or until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Process garlic mixture, orange juice, and remaining ingredients in blender until combined.
  4. FYI the cooked bacon is not actually used in this recipe, but you can top your salad with it if desired.
