From “Seduced By Bacon”, a bacon-themed cookbook.
5 slices bacon, cut into lardons
1 tomato, chopped
2 slices hearty bread (I used whole grain)
chopped green leaf lettuce
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
1 tbsp mayo
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 shallot, chopped
3 tbsp parsley, chopped
Whisk together oil, vinegar, mayo and mustard. Add shallot and parsley and set aside.
Cook bacon until crisp. Remove all but two tbsp bacon fat.
Cut bread into cubes. Brown in bacon fat.
Toss lettuce with dressing. Top salad with croutons, tomato and bacon. Serves 4.
