Caprese Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing


One of my favorite salads to make during these hot summer months.  Cool and refreshing and packed with so much flavor. What a wonderful combination. This dressing is so good!
Caprese Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing
4 ripe tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 package fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 12-inch slices
fresh basil leaves
6 thick bacon slices, chopped
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Arrange tomatoes, cheese, and basil leaves on serving platter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  

You can put the tomatoes on top or the basil on top. Your preference. I do a combination of both.


Saute chopped bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove from heat. 

Transfer 3 tablespoons of the bacon fat into a mixing bowl. Let stand for 1 minute. Whisk in vinegar, salt, and pepper. Drizzle over the salad right before serving.
