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!

Totally!

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.

Bacon Vinaigrette Recipe from addapinch.com

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.

Bacon Vinaigrette combines that tangy flavor you expect from a vinaigrette with the smokey flavor of the bacon. It will quickly become a favorite. // addapinch.com

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.

Bacon Vinaigrette combines that tangy flavor you expect from a vinaigrette with the smokey flavor of the bacon. It will quickly become a favorite.

Ingredients  

  • 4 slices bacon diced
  • 3 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Instructions 

  • Add diced bacon to a medium skillet or sauce pan over medium heat. Cook until crisp. Remove bacon from pan and set aside. Add stone ground mustard, honey, garlic, and salt and pepper to the bacon drippings. Combine well with a whisk.
  • Add apple cider vinegar to the pan, whisking to combine as pouring. Continue to whisk until the vinaigrette has thickened slightly. Add bacon bits back to the vinaigrette, if desired.
  • Pour into a jar that has been warmed under hot running water prior to adding the hot vinaigrette to prevent the container from cracking.

    1. Thanks! I keep trying to think of new salad combinations I can drizzle this stuff on for each meal. I’m addicted.

  1. Salivating over this dressing, Robyn! Bacon truly makes everything better and I’m guessing this is pretty darn addictive.

    1. Addictive is the perfect world, Dara. I’m loving it on everything from salads, to chicken to fresh sliced avocado.

  2. OMG! I always make my own dressings, but I’m pretty sure my husband would never let me buy one ever again in my life if I made him one with bacon! I need to try this πŸ™‚

  3. I used to work at a steak house that had the most amazing bacon vinaigrette, unfortunately, I never cracked the secret recipe, but your version looks pretty close. Lovely photos, Robyn!

  4. I can’t wait to make this…sounds perfect on a spinach salad. Does it count for a meatless monday meal on my typical salad ? lol πŸ™‚

  5. I adore bacon vinaigrette!!! I have an old family recipe for it, but I don’t want to dig it out πŸ˜‰ I think I’ll just make yours!

  6. Trying it for a dinner party. Sounds like a perfect accompaniment to a prime rib dinner.
    Thank you!

    This is delicious! I made it without any changes, and used it as dressing for a baby Yukon gold potato salad tossed with the leftover bacon and a bit of fresh scallions and nothing else. I am also going to try it served over some grilled green beans or asparagus also tossed with the leftover bacon.

    1. Hi Vera,
      So glad you liked it…isn’t it delicious?! All of that sounds scrumptious!!! xo

    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
