  • 4 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar to taste
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder


  • Cook bacon in a saucepan over medium heat until crisp and fat is rendered. Move bacon to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Measure 1/4 cup of fat, and discard remaining. If you don't have enough, add olive oil to equal 1/4 cup.
  • Add shallot and garlic, and saute until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  • Whisk in red wine vinegar, brown sugar, pepper, and mustard powder. If you prefer more acidity, add an extra tablespoon of brown sugar and red wine vinegar.
  • Stir in reserved bacon, and serve over salad immediately.
