This was the very first salad I was willing to eat for my Mother and to this day, is my favorite. I do this one often with grilled steaks. For years I didn’t like anything with vinegar in/on it! 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 just the warm bacon grease on this. This makes a lovely lunch all by itself, with a little extra bacon on it perhaps. 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!!
