Salads, a Skinny Lady and TV
And, no, this post isn’t about a skinny lady who sits around watching TV eating only salad.
First, I want to share a great salad dressing recipe with you. I don’t even have a title for the dressing. I got the recipe from a skinny little lady that goes to my church. She is an excellent hostess and a really great cook and makes *delicious* salads. Try this dressing. You won’t be sorry that you did.
Salad with Bacon and Shredded White Cheddar
Shredded White Cheddar
10-12 strips bacon, fried and crumbled
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 cup oil
2 T. dried onion
1 T. dried parsley
1/2 t. salt
1/2 package cheese garlic salad dressing mix (from Good Seasons)
1/2 T. paprika
Simple syrup made with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/2 cups water
1. Make the simple syrup.
2. Let it cool.
3. Put everything but the oil in a blender.
4. Turn on blender and drizzle the oil in a thin stream until it is gone.
Toss the greens with dressing. Top with as much cheddar and bacon as you wish. Dressing will double, but you might have trouble getting it all in your blender.
Project Runway fans: don’t forget that we get a new one tonight. And, don’t read EW unless you want some of the suspense taken away from you.
Susannah and Trinny fans: The What Not to Wear girls have a new show tonight at 9 (I think). They will be checking on the fashion victims from previous shows to see if they are still following the rules.
Alright, there you have it. Skinny lady, TV and salad — that’s all I’ve got for today.
