Hot Bacon Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe
14+ years ago, I went on a date with a really great guy. Long story short, we got married. It was a good date. The date started at a local restaurant that had the world’s best salad and croissants. After a few years, the restaurant closed down and it’s been over a decade since I tasted what was the best salad dressing ever.
It wasn’t until just recently that it even crossed my mind to try and recreate the salad and dressing. I can’t really say how accurate I was in the recreation since it’s been so long, but this turned out so good that I don’t think it matters how closely it resembles the original.
House Salad Recipe (Hot Bacon Grease Trick)
The key to this dressing is the hot bacon grease. I know that might sound weird, and even a little gross, but I promise it’s what makes this dressing the best you’ll ever have. If you’re not already saving the grease from your bacon, you need to start. Simply strain it through a mesh sieve into a glass jar and store it in the fridge. Use it to cook up veggies and eggs instead of using other cooking fats.
This Hot Bacon Honey Mustard Dressing is dairy-free but the salad does have cheese added to it, so if you’re dairy-free, just omit the cheese and you’ve got a perfectly dairy-free meal. We like to make extras and have a side salad for lunch each day.
