Hot Bacon and Mustard Dressing

Especially delicious over spinach greens, this dressing holds up well to heartier greens such as Swiss chard and kale. Works well over tender greens for a wilted salad.

Cook bacon pieces until crisp in a large sauté pan. Remove bacon and reserve. With fat over medium-low heat, add sugar, mustard, salt and pepper and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and carefully whisk in water and vinegar. Serve warm over greens with bacon pieces. Refrigerates well for several weeks.
