Hot Bacon Dressing: A Flavorful Twist to Your Salad

If you’re a bacon lover like me, then you’re in for a treat! I’m going to share with you one of my all-time favorite salad dressings – Hot Bacon Dressing. This dressing is not only incredibly delicious, but it also adds a unique twist to your salad that you won’t be able to resist.

To make this dressing, start by crisping up some thickly sliced smoked bacon in a sauté pan with a little vegetable oil. Once the bacon is crispy, transfer it to a strainer set over a bowl to collect the flavorful bacon fat. In the same pan, sauté minced onion until golden brown, then add garlic and cook for a minute. Next, add a mixture of apple cider vinegar, rice vinegar, water, sugar, and Dijon mustard. Bring the mixture to a simmer and thicken it with a cornstarch slurry. Finally, drizzle in the reserved bacon fat and stir in the cooked bacon. The result is a thick, glossy, and peppery dressing with a smoky, tangy flavor that will elevate your salad to the next level.
