When I got a pack of duck bacon in a bacon assortment from D’Artagnan Foods, I was not sure what to do with it. The other day we went out to dinner and Xaver ordered a Cobb Salad that was so delicious that I ended up eating half of it and skipped my entree. A salad it would be, for the duck bacon! A faint-worthy decadent duck bacon salad…
After running into Brian Hepp from Hepp’s Salt Co at the Patchwork Show this weekend, we had everything we needed to make a truly decadent duck bacon salad that will be the star of your Christmas dinner menu.
I am typing this as I polished off a full plate of this salad and am about to fall into a serious food coma. I hope I got all the photos I need because the salad is long gone and I am literally about the faint from all the goodness that is D’Artagnan Foods Duck Bacon!
Xaver and I created this salad together, bringing in a bit of the richness of a Cobb with the egg, gorgonzola, and bacon and light sophistication of the pear, walnuts, and vinaigrette. Top that all off with a sprinkle of Hepp’s Salt Co Roasted Garlic Sea Salt and well… It all starts with the “For the Love of Bacon” assortment from D’Artagnan Foods. If you have a bacon lover in your life, “For the Love of Bacon” is a must have gift for the holidays and is a great deal at the bundle price.
