My daughter is vegetarian so I came up with this alternative to hot bacon dressing for spinach salad. This is great if there are vegetarians at your table. I serve crumbled bacon on the side so we still get the delicious flavor of hot bacon dressing! You can substitute Dijon mustard for the honey Dijon mustard, if desired.

Just made this and it was amazing!!! I have extra and I’m going to add some cayenne pepper and garlic powder to it, with a tad more lemon juice and use it to marinate the pork chops we’re grilling this evening. Read More

This dressing is amaazzinnnggg. I used dijon mustard and 1/4 cup of sugar so this is a little less sweet and vegan. Highly recommend! Read More
