This salad is a hit at any function I bring it to. Be sure you make plenty because you’ll go back for more, more than once. Plus anything with bacon has to be good, right?
Dressing: In a blender add vegetable oil, red wine vinegar, red onion, ground mustard, 1 cup sugar, and a pinch of salt. Puree until smooth and set aside in refrigerator. This recipe makes a lot of dressing, so no need to use all of it on the salad.
Caramelized Slivered Almonds: In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add slivered almonds and 1/4 cup sugar. Stir frequently until browned and sugar has dissolved over nuts. Lay flat on baking sheet to cool. Break apart and serve in salad.
Bacon: Cook and crumble. I know a pound sounds like a lot of bacon, but trust me here–it’s still not enough!
Assemble lettuce, bacon, nuts, and Craisins. Pour a bit of dressing into the bowl and evenly coat salad. Serve immediately so that the lettuce doesn’t wilt. EAT UP!
Peppery watercress pairs beautifully with the sweetness of strawberries and earthy flavor of toasted hazelnuts. Served with a red wine vinaigrette.
A classic southwest salad made with kale for extra nutrition and topped with a homemade cumin ginger sage dressing.
I had never had fennel before, but when I tasted this salad I absolutely loved it and over the years I have changed the recipe to include Meyer lemons and truffle cheese. It’s really refreshing. The bitterness of the baby arugula with the tart lemon dressing and the salty Parmesan cheese makes it perfect.
