Bacon + Green Onion Side Salad

One thing you will quickly learn about me is that I LOVE bacon.  I can’t believe I’m admitting this publicly, but last week I ate bacon for seven meals in a row.  SEVEN.  Breakfast, lunch, dinner, breakfast, lunch, dinner, breakfast.  Decided I should lay off for a little bit.  That lasted for one day.  I just can’t get enough.  Anyways, this salad is my go-to side salad to accompany almost any meal.  I always have the ingredients, it is super quick, and oh so tasty.  I hope you enjoy this trusty little salad.

INGREDIENTS: 
  • 1 head of lettuce of your choice (I use red-tip lettuce)
  • 4-6 cooked slices of organic, pastured bacon (save the fat, you’ll need it for the dressing)
  • 1/4 cup green onion
  • 1/4 cup bacon fat
  • 1/8 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/8 cup 100% Pure Maple Syrup
METHOD:
1.  Wash and tear lettuce into bite size pieces.  Combine in bowl with chopped green onions and chopped bacon.
2.  In a saucepan over low heat, melt bacon fat and add maple syrup and apple cider vinegar.  Remove from heat as soon as bacon fat returns to liquid form.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then pour over salad, toss, and serve.
*Use organic ingredients whenever possible.

  1. Erin,
    I tried this recipe last night and it was delicious. I also found a yummy recipe for pumpkin squares grain-free that taste like gingerbread.
