This smoky dressing is great on any salad green but is especially delicious with peppery arugula. It's so flavorful that a little bit goes a long way.

Ingredients

uncooked bacon

3 slice(s), cut into 1/2-inch pieces

uncooked shallot(s)

2 Tbsp, minced

water

2 Tbsp

white wine vinegar

2 Tbsp

olive oil

1 Tbsp

table salt

¼ tsp

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground

Instructions

  1. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat; add bacon and cook, stirring frequently, until browned and crisp, about 7 minutes.
  2. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon; remove all but 1 tablespoon bacon fat from skillet.
  3. Add shallot, water, vinegar, oil, salt and pepper to skillet; stir to blend and then stir in bacon. Yields about 1/2 tablespoon per serving.

Notes

This recipe yields enough dressing to coat about 12 cups of loosely packed lettuce.
