This wonderful bacon salad recipe or Frisée aux Lardons is very popular in all areas of France.

You can serve your bacon salad just as it is or with some really tasty variations.

Sometimes it has hard-boiled egg, chopped and sprinkled on it.

Or another really great way to serve it is with a lightly poached egg on the top - it's so heavenly!

It's a great way to combine fresh salad leaves with delicious crispy bacon - a really tasty meal for all your family and friends.


Tips For Great Bacon Salad Recipe

Start with a green.

Frisée lettuce, which has a frizzy texture, part of the chicory family, as well as a distinctive bitter edge which may not sound tasty, but is delightful.

 Or dandelion when it is in spring growth before the flower.

Then the bacon, lean, lean, lean is the key here as you will be making a dressing from the drippings, and you do not want a dressing drizzled on your salad which is bacon fat laden.

So, you will need a little olive oil to gently fry the lean bacon and then some of the other delicious items in the ingredient list.

Sourdough cubes or any other white bread favorite that you may have will work perfect.

The above all mixed with the flavourings of garlic, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard and fresh ground pepper. Mmm...
