jkath, here's a Bacon Vinaigrette for you!

Bacon Vinaigrette
Yields: 1 ½ c

4 oz bacon, diced
2 oz onion, diced
½ c water
½ c cider vinegar
2 oz sugar
1 t salt
pepper to taste
To thicken:
½ oz cornstarch
¼ c water

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, brown the bacon. When the bacon is done to your liking, add the onions. Sauté over medium-high heat until the onion turns translucent, and the pan has a brown coating. Add the water and cider vinegar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, scraping the pan bottom and sides to deglaze the pan. When the liquid begins to boil, add the sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir to dissolve. While the liquid returns to a boil, combine the cornstarch and the remaining water. Add to the pan to thicken the dressing. Serve warm over spinach greens or spring mix.

For a real treat, use pancetta instead of bacon, and use port instead of water.

I have another recipe that I can't post here because of copyright policy.

Thanks, Allen...I was wanting the recipe too. Would mind sending me other recipe in a PM?

I had a wonderful orange vinaigrette dressing on a spinach salad in a restaurant once, but they wouldn't share the recipe. I wonder if it would work to just substitute orange juice for the water in this recipe?

I'd love to. Unfortunately, that particular recipe came from The Common Grill Cookbook, ISBN: 1886947880, by Craig Common. We used it at the country club I worked at while I lived in Jackson, MI.

the other thing you can do is re-word the recipe substantially. If you put it in your own words then it is not breaking any rules. the trick is that it has to be completely in your own words. You can't just change a word or two in each sentence.
