Equipment

  • fry pan
  • tongs
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • medium mixing bowl
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Measuring Cups
  • whisk

Ingredients

  • 1 slice bacon
  • 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 1/2 cup red grapes
  • 1 tablespoon minced red onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon almonds roughly chopped or sliced

Instructions

  • Heat frypan over medium heat. Once hot, add slice of bacon, cook until both sides are to desired crispiness. About 5-7 minutes.
  • While bacon is cooking, make dressing in mixing bowl. Add 1/2 tbsp each mayonnaise and yogurt, 1 tsp red wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp sugar, and 1/4 tsp salt. Whisk together. Set aside
  • Chop broccoli, slice grapes, and mince onion if not pre chopped. Measure out 1 cup of chopped broccoli, 1/2 cup grapes (sliced in half), and 1 tbsp minced onion. Save remaining ingredients for another recipe.
  • Place bacon on cutting board, blot out excess grease with a paper towel if desired, chop into bite sized pieces.
  • Add vegetables and bacon to mixing bowl, and mix together with tongs until dressing coats all vegetables. Add 1/2 tbsp chopped almonds prior to serving.

Notes

  • When turning bacon, grab far edge with tongs, and turn away from you. Cover with a mesh fryer screen. Carefully pour grease into a (not plastic!) bowl, set aside to cook eggs, proteins, veggies (beet greens anyone?) later.
  • Save time by mixing the dressing together in the bowl, then add all the salad ingredients except the almonds all together.
  • Chop the broccoli into small bite sized pieces to avoid a huge mouthful of broccoli
  • Cut bacon fat off before chopping bacon. No need to bite into 100% bacon fat without any of the delicious salty bacon (unless you love it, then keep it together)
