My broken wrist and fingers are hurting less from my fall mishap. I find I can type for short periods of time without pain now. 🙂 So I thought I’d add the first salad I ever ate in my life to my blog. Not a new, innovative salad, but a long-time favorite of mine.
When I was a young girl, this was the only salad my mother could get me to eat. I didn’t like vinegar on ANYTHING! But of course, the rest of the family added a splash of red wine vinegar in varying amounts. That was their personal preference, but my preference was NONE!
This salad is delicious with grilled steaks but I like it for a complete lunch and sometimes add an extra slice of bacon. Perfect for all you bacon lovers out there. It is suitable for all phases of Atkins and Primal-Paleo as well. It’s a great way to boost your day’s fat macros, too!!

2 c. salad greens of your choosing (spinach, lettuce, arugula, radicchio,etc)
6 slices cucumber
Sprinkle of green onion, chopped
3 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
OPTIONAL: Splash of vinegar of your choice
DIRECTIONS: Prepare the plate of salad greens, adding the cucumber slices and tomatoes on top. Brown the bacon over high heat in a medium skillet. Do not drain unless there is more than 3 T. grease in the pan. Pour bacon with 3 T. of hot bacon grease over the greens to wilt them. Serve at once with a heavy sprinkle of coarse black pepper and some nice grilled steaks.
