Submitted by: Carol Heinle

Makes: 4 servings

Dressing:
6 slices Sausage Shoppe Hickory-smoked bacon or pound chunk double smoked bacon
1 chopped onion
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon flour, to thicken

Cut bacon into pieces and fry (or microwave) with onion until bacon is cooked and onion is transparent. Stir in remaining ingredients and heat until thickened.

Salad:
1 bag romaine lettuce with carrots and red cabbage
2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
2 vine-ripened tomatoes, chopped
can 1.5-ounce potato sticks

Divide lettuce into 4 servings. Top lettuce with egg, tomato and potato sticks. Just before serving, top with Hot Bacon Salad dressing and Honey Dijon dressing (I like Marzetti). Serve with croissant.
