Green Leaf Lettuce
Chopped Roma Tomatoes
Sliced Zucchini
Chopped Artichoke Hearts

     Hot Bacon dressing

Recipe By     :Ginny
Serving Size  : 4    
Categories    : Sauces/dressings/Misc.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  6             slices  bacon
     1/2           cup  sliced onion
     1/4           cup  apple cider vinegar -- (I use Bragg's organic)
     1/4           cup  water
  2            packets  Truvia -- (or equivilent of 4 tsp. of sugar)
     1/2      teaspoon  salt

Easiest way to do this is to just use a scissors and cut up your bacon before cooking.  In a medium frying pan, cook the bacon. Remove bacon and add sliced onions to the pan with the grease. Fry until brown.

Add the bacon back, along with the vinegar, water, Truvia, and salt and stir, bringing to a boil.

Add to salad and toss.  Serve immediately.

  1. That sounds delicious... :) I think it would be fantastic on a chef salad... Yummy!!

  2. I like the hot bacon dressing. Mine is a bit different than this as it has mayo in it. It sort of wilts the lettuce leaves a bit - very tasty!

  3. That sounds good Jennifer! I thought of adding mayo to this. Can't go wrong with bacon ;)
