Recipe Box, Mixed Green Salad with Corn & Bacon Dressing

Salad topped with a warm bacon and corn vinaigrette?

Yes please!

Sounds fancy but it’s a breeze to make

and your tastebuds will thank you!

Corn and bacon are combined with several other vegetables,

rendered bacon fat, vinegar, and mustard

to make the dressing to top a mixed green salad

I used green onions and roasted Brussels sprouts,

but you could sub broccoli or cauliflower,

roasted or raw, for the sprouts,

or leave the sprouts out if you’re not a fan~

First cook bacon pieces until crispy

Remove bacon from the skillet to drain on paper towels

Remove all but 1 Tbsp of bacon grease from pan,

reserving the rest of the drippings

Then add corn, chives and Brussels sprouts*

*I used small Brussels sprouts that I previously roasted

but you could use sliced raw sprouts if desired

Cook and stir over medium heat for several minutes

to warm vegetables

Add vinegar and mustard, season with salt and pepper,

stirring to combine

Add bacon back to pan

Taste and add more vinegar, mustard or drippings if desired

Fill a bowl or bowls with mixed salad greens

I used large individual bowls,

but you can use 1 large bowl if preferred

Spoon the warm bacon and corn dressing over the salad

and serve immediately
