|Julian's Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing|
You really can make whatever type of salad you desire, using any set of salad ingredients. Here I'm using just some fresh tomatoes, feta cheese and the crumbled bacon pieces. With the hot dressing it is delicious.
3 slices bacon, crisp and chopped
1 egg, well beaten
1 1⁄2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1⁄4 cup vinegar
1⁄4 cup sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
salad greens (lettuce, endive, spinach or dandelion)
chopped onion (optional)
Cook bacon until crisp; remove and chop. Set aside the bacon and reserve the drippings.
Mix together the egg, flour, milk, vinegar, sugar and salt. Reheat the bacon drippings until just hot, but not boiling. While whisking rapdily, pour the mixture into the hot bacon drippings and cook until thickened, 2-3 minutes.
Prepare the salad greens by washing, drying and tearing into bite sized pieces. Add the optional onion, tomatoes and other toppings of your choice. Add the reserved bacon bits. Pour the warm dressing over the salad and serve while still warm.
