Warm Bacon Vinaigrette
Taste and Texture: Salty, smoky, and tart. Thin-bodied, with chunks of bacon crumbles and chopped shallots. Try with: Main-dish green salad with shredded rotisserie chicken; grilled or roasted chicken or trout; seared scallops; steamed or sautéed green beans or asparagus; roasted Brussels sprouts.
Tips: Add the oil slowly, drop by drop at first, stirring constantly with a whisk to get an emulsion. Mustard is an emulsifier and helps stabilize the blend.
