Sometimes, just sometimes, one must throw all caution to the wind and eat with reckless and wild abandon, purely for the joy of eating. This is one such time.
This vibrant green salad is full of complementing textures with fresh spinach, bacon, fried red onions, toasted almonds and salty Parmesan cheese. The dressing is made from warm grease rendered from cooking the bacon along with vinegar, honey and Dijon mustard. It’s smoky, sweet and tangy in an incredibly delicious and incomparable way. Nothing in the world is like the distinct flavor of bacon – there is no substitute. Don’t even consider it.
This screams for eggs! Hard-boiled, poached or fried, whatever you fancy, will turn this into a main dish salad that you will want to keep eating. Be sure to savor every bite. The last bite may be met with some sadness. Brace yourself for it. You may be tempted to make another one. Be prepared.
You know how on TV some silly food hosts will take a bite of their food and exaggerate how good it is by letting their eyes roll back in their head at the same time letting out a groan? Not so silly anymore
