Mom’s Warm Bacon Dressing

Whether it was on leaf lettuce straight from the garden, baby spinach from the grocery store, or straight from the cast iron skillet on the stove, I loved my my mom’s warm bacon dressing. spinach salad with warm bacon dressing The sweet and sour dressing becomes opaque and thick after cooling down…I can still eat it by the spoonful. Although a rather unorthodox technique, I remember my mom using both flour and corn starch to thicken the dressing.  She did not like using cornstarch as a thickener as much as flour, but I do not think she liked the result of using just flour…this was her solution.  Therefore, I use both also. Once again,  I find myself  composing a recipe from my memory of watching her make it because she rarely measured ingredients or used a recipe.  (Full disclosure: I usually only measure all ingredients when cooking for A Simple Home Cook… I measure when baking, but not cooking).
