Bacon & Egg Salad Recipe

This tasty egg and bacon salad recipe also features potatoes, anchovies, and cherry tomatoes for a variety of textures and colors. This is very easy to prepare and it is similarly easy to double or triple the amount. That might be a nice idea if you are catering for a pot luck supper or buffet but, if you are, remember to serve the dressing on the side, else the lettuce might get soggy. Crispy croutons or chopped avocado would also work in this egg and bacon salad recipe and you can omit any of the ingredients that you do not like or experiment with adding others.

If you prefer a creamy dressing, you can combine equal parts of yogurt and mayonnaise with the juice of half a lemon, a tablespoon of milk and some salt and black pepper, then just drizzle this dressing over the salad instead of the extra-virgin olive oil and lemon mixture. You can add extra milk if you want a runnier dressing (and also depending on how runny the yogurt and mayonnaise are). This salad is slightly reminiscent of a Caesar salad so you could even use a bottle Caesar salad dressing on it.

Crispy bacon is a popular salad topping and you can cook the bacon on a griddle or in a skillet. Drain the excess grease off on paper towels before you crumble it over the salad. You might like to serve this easy bacon salad as it is for a complete meal, or you could serve a chicken breast on the side if you want it to be a side salad (then it will feed four people rather than two). Chicken and bacon have a natural affinity so if you want to serve it as a main course rather than a side dish, you might like to add some chopped cooked chicken to the mix.
