  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar

  • 1.5 tablespoons Olive Oil

    Fry the bacon in a sauté pan or wok until crisp, about 5 minutes.

  • 3.

    Deglaze the pan with the vinegar and boil to reduce to about 2 teaspoons.

  • 4.

    Add enough oil to make a dressing.

*If you like, make goat cheese croûtes to serve alongside. Simply smear goat cheese on slices of baguette. Drizzle over olive oil. Grind on pepper. Pop them in a the oven at about 400°F/200°C until the bread has toasted and the cheese is very hot.
