Bacon Stone Ground Mustard Vinaigrette

I made something that I think you are going to love. You ready for it? Bacon Vinaigrette. Oh yeah, and it is ah-maz-ing!


It has all of the rich tangy flavors you expect with a vinaigrette combined with the smokiness I love from bacon. I do not believe I’ll have mine any other way for a long, long while.

And did I mention that it is easy as pie to make? Yeah, well, it’s actually a ton easier than pie, but you get the point.

My Bacon Vinaigrette adds so much flavor to a salad and it gets rave reviews from my husband, so I’d say it is a keeper of a recipe for sure. I do prefer to serve it warm or at room temperature for the full flavor.

To store it, pour into an airtight container and place in the refrigerator. Prior to serving, heat in the microwave for about a minute or so at 20 – 40% power, depending on your microwave. You can also simply add it to a sink full of hot water for a little while to completely warm prior to serving as well.

  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  1. Sometimes instead of spinach I use Spring Mix with sliced eggs, walnuts, Crasins, sliced red onion, sliced green apple, and sliced avocado. I add extra honey, and always double the recipe so I can have some for several days. I used the food processor for the garlic and cooked bacon.

    1. I used stone ground prepared mustard (not powder) in this recipe. Hope you enjoy it, Christine. xo
