Endive and Watercress Salad with Bacon-Cider Dressing

Photo: Johnny Autry; Styling: Cindy Barr

Smoky bacon, tangy Dijon, and maple syrup cut the bitter and pepper notes of the lettuces. Quality ingredients make all the difference in this simple salad, so splurge on extra-virgin olive oil, real maple syrup, and real-wood-smoked bacon.
