Paleo Salad

This is a fairly simple salad recipe that can be good for when you need something quick or want to include some greens in your diet:

Salad base: use whatever leafy vegetables work well for you. I used spinach, kale and chard last time I made it, but you can use anything. Fry up a generous serving of bacon and dice it into bits -- you can dice boiled eggs and put them in too if you prefer, or add things like cucumber, onion, etc.

Dressing: use olive oil as a base, and add bacon fat if desired. Mince garlic (the more the better) and sun-dried tomatoes (if tolerated), and add them to the olive oil with salt and vinegar. Things like capers and olives can also be used if desired. Store in a separate container and let infuse overnight.

Stir everything together the next day, and voilá :)

Yes, indeed it was delicious. It's so simple but so good. I love that dressing! Thanks, Shijing. ADDED: what vinegar did you use - apple cider?

Sounds great! I'll try it with arugala, purple basil, dill, cilantro, and parsley. Thanks for sharing.

It was half apple cider, half balsamic. Thanks for the compliments 1984 and Nancy2F, I'm glad you liked it -- the rest of the meal was really good too!

That sounds really good, SeekinTruth. I tried another version yesterday with turmeric mixed into the dressing, and that seemed to turn out well too.
