Hot Bacon Dressing

Recipes Adapted From:

3/4 pound sliced bacon, diced
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 cup cider vinegar
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 (2 ounce) jar diced pimientos, drained (I used 2 oz of jarred, roasted red
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, (I only had regular yellow mustard)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water


In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove bacon and set aside. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in the skillet. Add onion and saute until tender; remove from the heat. Add the vinegar, water, sugar, pimientos, mustard, salt, pepper and bacon; mix well. Combine cornstarch and cold water; stir into skillet. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Serve warm over fresh spinach or mixed greens. Refrigerate leftovers and reheat before serving.

Notes & Tips:

Beware!! This recipe makes 32 servings of this dressing. Make sure you have a big enough jar to store it in before you make it. I think this dressing tastes just like the dressing on the Applebee's Grilled Shrimp & Spinach Salad.
