Classic Wilted Salad with Bacon
This dressing will make any greens amazing. Add bacon bits, tomatoes and some hard boiled egg slices to knock it out of the park. You can serve it over lettuce, kale, spinach or a combination of greens. I'm pretty sure this dressing would taste equally great poured over a plate of lawn clippings. Not that you should eat lawn clippings. I’m just sayin’, it’s that good.

Recipe Notes

Fry bacon, set aside.  Pour fat into jar.  Add salt & sugar, stir until sugar & salt melt.  Add vinegar and water – mix well.  Stir before pouring over salad.

Use this dressing to top greens with sliced tomatoes and the bacon bits.  You could add some chives, onions, hard boiled eggs or anything else that blows up your skirt.  The sky’s the limit.

When you are ready to serve just pour the dressing over the salad and toss.  This dressing is served warm.  If you need to, you can reheat it before pouring it on the salad.
