A favorite classic spinach salad is made with a warm bacon dressing. Bacon is cooked and used in the salad and the bacon fat in the dressing. I am not saying it doesn’t taste good but, yikes, the saturated fat is crazy high. I prefer to make mine using turkey bacon in the salad and a reduced fat mayo based dressing. Sure, the turkey bacon is a processed meat and not what I would consider “healthy” but it less evil, in my opinion, than using regular bacon that is processed AND high in saturated fat. In the end, it’s all about balance.
