TNT-Greens,bacon and bread salad

I love this with a bowl of soup and extra bread to get the last of the dressing...
The dressing is thick almost like mayo...
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 so yummy - thanks so much for sharing !! Love these kinds of salads.

Is the sodium high like bacon in Pancetta? Have never used it

Connie, I used it because I had some and wanted the mustard and bacon flavors undiluted with evoo..But I feel it's a matter of what tastes good to us and what we have on hand..I can't see running out for an oil we might not use again..So I'd say use what you like and have at hand..

I do to Barb, salads are a favorite around here.
To be honest, I'm not sure about the sodium Barb...I'll see what I can find out..I do know though that it doesn't taste salty like American bacon.
