Warm Bacon Dressing

This dressing is good with firm, cool-weather greens such as spinach, radicchio, endive or escarole. They can withstand a bit of warmth without wilting and the sweetness of the dressing takes the edge off any slight bitterness, for those who don't love that chicory tang. Fry two strips of bacon until lightly browned, break it into small pieces and set aside. Pour off all but a tablespoon of grease and, while the pan is still warm, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey and 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard. Swirl vigorously in the pan with a spatula. then pour over your salad. Toss, add salt to taste if needed, and serve immediately.
