Hot Bacon Dressing


This peppery, sweet and tangy sauce is fast to make, and is wonderful on spinach salads. Wouldn’t this be great in a warm potato and mushroom salad, as well as a sauce for a grilled chicken breast or pork chop? What about spooned over poached eggs, or slathered on sweet potato fries? Yes, yes, yes, and yes!
