Green Salad with Bacon, Pears, and Buttermilk Dressing

By Elizabeth Stark and Brian Campbell |

I hate to sing the praises of bacon because it feels so overdone these days. Let’s just agree that most of us really like bacon. It tastes good, it smells good. We don’t need to go get tattoos of it or whatever the kids are doing these days. Do kids still get tattoos? Not little kids. Like college kids.

Now that we’ve established that bacon is good, let’s talk about buttermilk. Have you cooked with buttermilk lately? It’s fantastic. Tangy and rich- there are not a lot of foodstuffs like it. It’s a nice counterpoint to the smoky sweetness of the bacon and the crisp sweetness of the pears in this salad. Overall, this salad has a lot of exciting flavors and it’s pretty filling, too. It can stand alone as a lunch or makes a great complement to a light dinner.
