you need to mix 2-Tab. Dijon
2-Tab.red wine vinegar
salt
1/2-c. peanut oil
Put mustard in a small bowl and whisk in the vinegar and salt to taste..Slowly add the oil til lightly blended...Set aside
In a large shallow bowl add about 5-6 cups of your favorite salad greens, I like butter lettuce,chicory,escarole,and curly endive..
Then take some slab bacon I use pancetta about 4 oz. and cubed, fry this don't get rid of the oil that comes from cooking the bacon ..Get the cubes of bacon starting to give of fat, add 2 large slices of country style bread that has been cubed to the pan continue cooking, stirring from time to time til bread and bacon are brown and crisp..Pour this over the greens along with about 4 cloves of thinly sliced garlic...Toss and serve with extra bread...
Enjoy,
kadesma

That sounds absolutely wonderful. I'd prolly have to go with the smokey flavor of bacon though, pancetta is fine... but I just don't like it as much as bacon.
