Bacon Buttermilk Dressing

It was Wedge Salad Day (WSD) here. I love a cold slice of iceberg with my favorite salad go-tos, like boiled eggs, avocado and cherry tomatoes. And bacon. For more bacony flavor goodness I made a bacon buttermilk dressing. Nice and creamy smooth, but with a hint of smokiness and a little crunch.
The Dijon mustard adds a nice contrast to this dressing. A little tang. You could leave it out for a more mellow flavor and the dressing would be just as great. I like to consider this dressing ‘drink worthy’, a sign of a great salad dressing.

Also try my blue cheese vinaigrette. It’s perfect on a wedge salad too!
