This warm bacon dressing is wonderful on a spinach salad, or try it on baby kale or other tender greens. The warm dressing wilts the greens and the bacon adds a nice smoky flavor.


  • 3 slices bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 1/3 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 1/3 cup vinegar (red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 dash salt

Steps to Make It

Fry the bacon until crisp; remove to paper towels to drain.

In a small saucepan, combine the bacon drippings, sugar, vinegar, water, cornstarch, and a dash of salt. Whisk to blend. 

Cook over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is thickened. 

Drizzle warm dressing over a spinach salad or other greens; sprinkle with bacon.
