Allow me to introduce you to my latest obsession: warm bacon vinaigrette! On a chilly day, I decided to put together a nice warm salad with some sweet potatoes and bacon. I love sweet potatoes and I always have some on hand to round out a meal or add to a salad. Obviously they are delicious and satisfying, but they also pack a nutritional punch. They are full of fiber, vitamins B6, C, and E, and beta-carotene.
Now let’s talk about this dressing! With the leftover bacon grease, I made a warm vinaigrette to turn it into a robust, syrupy dressing with a hint of bacon in every bite. Instead of using onions, I opted for shallots because of the sweeter, milder taste which would not distract from the bacon flavor. It’s the real star of the show here!
But wait until you sprinkle some bacon bits on top. If you love them as much as I do, it wouldn’t hurt to double that part of the recipe. They say you only live once.
