Needed to eat something green for dinner after that! Fortunately I had all the fixings for a fabulous salad already prepped in the refrigerator! The red leaf lettuce and baby kale mixtures were already washed, dried and torn. I had some beautiful grape tomatoes that I had sliced for a party yesterday (Caesar Salad Bruschetta), a couple of pieces of my thai spicy bacon and half of an avocado. I was out of blue cheese but subbed some goat cheese. Trader Joe's sell these nifty little bags of 6 individually wrapped goat cheese "coins" --one is the perfect serving size for a large bowl of salad.
Best salad topping: thai bacon
In microwave, cook 4 pieces of bacon for 3-4 minutes, you do not want it crispy, but most of the fat cooked off.
In a small bowl mix 1 T. of brown sugar with 1 T. of sambal olek (thai chili paste), stir and dip bacon into mixture. Brush off excess.
Line baking pan with foil, spray cooling rack with Pam or other non-stick spray. Place bacon on rack. Bake at 400 for 4 minutes, flip and continue baking for 4 more minutes. (For those of you who have had my thai burgers--you know you love this bacon! I've also been serving it with my breakfast buffets!)
