The dressing:

Our Low-Carb Bacon Vinaigrette recipe is loaded with bacon flavor. We combined lots of real bacon crumbles with a touch of bacon grease. Next, we added chives and some whole grain mustard, because they just seemed to be natural pairing. Red wine vinegar brightens the flavor and a touch of mayo adds creaminess. Together, they turn a salad into a bacon lovers dream.

The inspiration:

I love making my own salad dressings. It allows me to control the ingredients I put on my salad. Many commercial dressings contain sugars and starches as well as flavor and color enhancers.

Besides, let’s face it, homemade dressing also just tastes better. Commercial dressings don’t contain fresh ingredients because they need to sit on the shelves for months. When we make our own dressings, like this one and my Low-Carb Blue Cheese Dressing (Dip), we can use all the fresh ingredients we want because they will be used up within a few days.

This recipe was inspired by a dressing my mother used to make. She made a warm sweet and sour bacon dressing that she would put on dandelion greens. While I love her bacon dressing, I was looking to create a bacon that was a little brighter and less sweet.

Using this dressing: 

This dressing makes a delicious topping for a salad made with almost any type of greens. It can stand up to spinach and more bitter greens. Tomatoes make a perfect salad addition, because, well, they just go so well with bacon. The whole thing together makes it like a BLT in a bowl. With this dressing, there isn’t any need for bacon bits. I’m not kidding when I say that it’s loaded with bacon. Enjoy!
