Little confession: I really don’t like greens all that much.
I know, I know…..*hangs head in shame*
The only way I really enjoy greens is when I can’t taste them.
In other words, I only really enjoy greens when I drench them in this warm bacon dressing.
Warm. Bacon. Dressing.
Need I say more?
This recipe came to be because I joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) this year. Side note – CSA’s are AWESOME! You should totally look into joining one, too, if you have the opportunity. I love being able to support my local farms and get this amazing, chemical free, non-GMO produce and pasture raised meats.
But anyway, my CSA kept sending me these greens. Week after week. Blechy greens. As beautiful as these greens were, I just didn’t enjoy the taste of them. I knew I had to figure out some way to make these greens more enjoyable besides hiding them in my morning breakfast shake (see that recipe HERE – it’s a good one).
And this warm bacon dressing was my answer!
And it’s a great thing to do with leftover bacon fat.
So go make it and then fill up your plate with a big ‘ol pile of greens. Don’t be scared. You’ll enjoy it, I promise!
- Whisk all ingredients together and serve.
- Enjoy over salad greens, eggs, vegetables or even different kinds of meat!
Must be warmed before using.
