Warm Bacon Dressing Salad Ala Judy's Foodies


What a fabulous salad! This dressing was the perfect compliment to the salad! I never ate Warm Bacon Dressing before even though it is a local favorite. But this idea just hit me so I thought I would give it a try & I am so happy that I did! I took a basic Warm Bacon Dressing & added my own special touch. This salad is a salad that you do want to see come to an end, it is that good. This could be the main meal or a side dish, whichever you choose make enough because it will be devoured!
This recipe is enough for 2 large salads with enough dressing for about 4 salads, just use more salad fixings to make 4 servings!

6 Pieces of Bacon fried crisp in a medium heavy skillet, I used my black iron skillet! Leaving the bacon grease in the pan you need 3 Tablespoons for the dressing. If you have more just drain off all but 3 Tablespoons. Take the bacon out once crisp & set them aside patting dry with paper towel.
Mix together:
3 TBS Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
Whisk into that 1 beaten egg
1/4 Cup White Vinegar
2 Cups Milk
Whisk this into your bacon grease, whisk in 2 Tablespoons Pancake Syrup, & whisk  cooking over medium high until nice & thick. Keep warm while you mix up the salad.
2 Medium Red Skinned potatoes washed & cooked until tender but firm leave the skin on! I micro waved mine by pricking with a fork then placed them onto paper towels & cooked them on high 2 minutes, turned them & cooked on high another 2 minutes, they were perfect! Set aside. 
1 Honey Crisp Apple cut in 1/2 use only one half, core the apple slice then like you would for pie & keep in lemon juice until you are ready to assemble your salad so the slices do not turn brown. 
1 Cup Baby Spinach Leaves washed & patted dry
1/4 Cup or so of thinly sliced fresh cabbage
2 Cups Spring Mix Greens washed & dried
Red Onion sliced thin as much as you like!
Plate up your greens.
Slice your warm potatoes into nice thin wedges & arrange on the bed of greens. Arrange the apple slices next. Top with the bacon that you slightly crumble 3 slices per salad. Sprinkle with a nice crouton. I used New York Texas Toast Cheddar Bacon Croutons. Now drizzle an ample amount of that nice warm Bacon Dressing! This is an AMAZING SALAD! The warm potato slices, the crisp apple, the crunchy bacon, crisp greens with the cabbage for crunch & then that heavenly Bacon Dressing. This is the PERFECT SALAD!
