Bacon Wilted Salad

Bacon Wilted Salad

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!!
