"Bacon drippings add flavor to the sauteed vegetables, and the bacon crumbles are the finishing touch on top of the salad. A simple reduction of the cider concentrates the apple essence in the dressing. It's a technique you can use to intensify the flavor of all manner of sauces and dressings." Kathryn Conrad in Cooking Light Magazine.
