Warm bacon dressing
The dressing is served with the restaurant’s spinach salad.

2 pounds coarsely chopped bacon
1 pound light brown sugar
7 ounces honey (by weight)
22 ounces red wine vinegar (by volume)

1. Place bacon in the freezer in the pan for a half-hour.
2. Cook bacon in a pot over medium heat until just cooked without letting it become brown or crisp.
3. Add sugar, vinegar and honey and continue cooking just below a boil for six to eight minutes. Let the mixture cool, and remove about half of the fat that has solidified on the top. The bacon fat is key to the flavor. The recipe is best made a day in advance.
4. Serve with salad.
