This Hot Bacon Dressing is the perfect salad topper! Smoky bacon paired with vinegar, garlic, mustard, & a bit of sweetness make this recipe a must try!
Make any simple salad a superstar with this Keto Hot Bacon Dressing. Hearty chunks of bacon, a touch of acidity from the mustard, and absolutely packed with everyone’s favorite source of fat…bacon grease.
I use this dressing to add some flair to my salads and make sure I get enough vegetables in my diet. Typically I make a big salad at least once a week to use up any random leftovers. Otherwise, they’d be pushed to the back of the fridge and forgotten in the “science project” section of the fridge. This dressing transforms even the most boring basic salad to a gourmet salad.
Speaking of gourmet salads, the other day Lauren and I were driving down the road and as it approached lunchtime she was googling somewhere to find lunch. She found a little pizza and salad place and called in an order for us to pick up. We ordered big salads with tons and tons of toppings not knowing the toppings were priced individually. Fortunately, the restaurant called back before they started making the salad to inform us that we had just unintentionally ordered $50 salads ($52.49 to be exact). That price for that salad is absolutely absurd, but we’ve all been in a restaurant and seen a $20+ salads.
With this dressing, you can make your at-home salad taste as though it comes from a 4-star restaurant. You may even be able to trick some picky eaters into eating more veggies, it’s a win-win!
