When friends are over, I used to do my best to pull out all the stops. I was known to make four last minute trips to the grocery store to make justonemorething to take the table from full to bursting. And then Gooplet came around, and simply gathering friends around the table seemed like enough of a win. If my husband can grill and I can pull off a side or two, what more do we need? (Answer: nothing!) But it’s still nice to take a classic and give it a little hint of something special.
That’s exactly what this Caprese salad with hot bacon dressing is. Yep. Hot*. Bacon. Dressing.
*Except mine was room temperature bacon dressing, and I served it over a bed of arugula.
