Brilliant Bacon Tomato Salad Dressing
This bacon tomato salad dressing is loosely based on the tomato dressing you can find at the Outback Steakhouse, although the bacon adds an extra flavor and gives it meatiness and a saltier flavor. If you do not want to use bacon, you should add a pinch of salt to the dressing recipe to make up for it. This salad dressing is unusual in that you need to cook it and then chill it. Simmering it dissolves the sugar and encourages all the ingredients to blend to perfection. The resulting salad dressing is smooth and rich-flavored.
This bacon tomato salad dressing is gently spiced and the sweetness of the ketchup and sugar balances out the tartness of the vinegar to give a mouthwatering burst of flavor. Drizzle this delicious bacon tomato salad dressing over crisp lettuce leaves or over your favorite chicken or beef salad recipe. You could serve it hot or warm but it is also nice served chilled.
Although there are quite a few seasonings in this recipe, you will find they blend beautifully, offering a complex and mouthwatering flavor. Whether you are planning to serve this over salad leaves or use it in a chicken or salmon salad, or do something creative with it, there is no doubt you will agree the savory, salty, piquant taste is simply amazing. It is also a very easy recipe to make.

Does anything beat the amazing aroma of bacon sizzling? This recipe makes use of that fantastic ingredient, teaming it with ketchup, vinegar, and a variety of herbs and spices. The resulting mixture is then chilled and served as a tangy salad dressing. You will find it complements everything from chicken to fish, and it is also delicious served over plain salad leaves if you want an unusual side dish. Once your bacon is sufficiently crispy (like in the picture) it is time to crumble it with the other ingredients, then let the dressing it in the refrigerator so it can cool and the ingredient flavors can blend.
