This is a warm vinaigrette that can be used on a fresh spinach salad, a warm potato salad or just a fresh garden tomato salad.
- 1 large Vidalia onion
- 6 slices Applewood Smoked Bacon
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 Tbsp. dry mustard
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 Tbsp. Red Wine vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tsp. Poppyseeds (optional)
- Parsely for garnish
Add onions to food processor and chop until very fine. Set aside.
Dice bacon into 1-inch pieces and fry until crisp and brown. Reserve drippings. Drain on paper towel.
Into reserved bacon drippings, saute onions until just tender; add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add vinegar, dry mustard, sugar and salt and pepper to taste. Saute for 1 minute. Add olive oil and poppy seeds and combine well. Remove from heat and add bacon pieces. Sprinkle with fresh parsley.
Cook's Note: If you feel that you have too much bacon fat (really?) you can remove some and add additional oil.
There's a farmers' market near me that sells several Vidalia onion salad dressings that I love. Thanks for showing me how to make my own!ReplyDelete
Once again I find myself simply saying "wow". I've bookmarked this, tons of flavor I'm sure:@)ReplyDelete
I just saw this and I think I gained 20lbs. Mostly cause of all the stuff I will now eat for the excuse of putting this dressing on, and also because of all the other things I can see on your site. Thanks a lot! lolReplyDelete
