How to make it

  • The first trick when making this salad dressing dish, is not to overcook your bacon nor cook it too fast.
  • Slice up bacon into 3/4" inch pieces
  • In skillet, and add one tablespoon of olive oil into cold skillet.
  • Place cold bacon in cold skillet.
  • Turn on heat to medium - and let bacon slowly crisp on.
  • If bacon fat, while cooking, is spattering onto your stove top, you are cooking the bacon too fast. Cooking bacon on medium and not high heat is best.
  • Stir on occasion to turn bacon pieces over so they can brown evenly.
  • While bacon is cooking, dice up onions and mince garlic.
  • In separate bowl, add minced garlic, mayonnaise, mustard, honey and salt and pepper. Measure vinegars and add to bowl.
  • With whisk, stir to incorporate well.
  • Slowly with stirring with whisk, add olive oil very slowly stirring all the while to make an emulsion. Using a blender might make this step easier for some.
  • Once bacon is crisp and cooked, using a slotted spoon, remove bacon and set aside.
  • Remove most of bacon fat, reserving roughly three tablespoons of bacon in skillet.
  • Wipe sides of skillet of any dripped bacon fat before returning to stove.
  • Keeping heat on a medium to medium-low, add onions and let become translucent - maybe five minutes time.
  • Turn heat off. Slowly add vinegar and oil mixture, the skillet will still be hot and mixture may bubble on you.
  • Turn heat back on and let simmer (not boil) for three minutes.
  • Let hot dressing cool 5-10 minutes before adding to salads, in case you do not wish to "cook" or wilt your salad greens - it will still be warm.
  • Right before using salad dressing, add your bacon back to the salad dressing. And voila, add over your favorite salad.
