"For thick sweet and tangy dressing that's irresistible, try this recipe," urges Joyce Turley of Slaughters, Kentucky.


  • 4 bacon strips, diced
  • 2 cups honey-Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon cider or red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Torn salad greens or fresh spinach


  1. In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 3 tablespoons drippings; set bacon aside. To the drippings, add Dijon mustard, sugar, orange juice, vinegar and ground mustard; bring to a boil. Stir in honey and bacon. Serve warm over salad greens or spinach. Refrigerate leftovers; reheat before serving.
