We eat lots of salads, especially during the work-week for lunches. Our honey mustard asparagus bacon salad is great because you can prep the hard-boiled eggs, bacon, and dressing in advance and then just assemble your salad together when you’re ready to eat. You can also make it over the weekend, and store the dressing in a separate container to drizzle over the top when you’re ready for lunch at work.
I love that this salad has a variety of greens and protein for a filling salad. It’s hard to pack it away for lunches and not eat it right away when we are cooking the bacon on the stove. The entire house smells like breakfast, enticing me to devour the bacon before it even makes it into my lunch container. That’s what bacon does to me; now you know my kryptonite. It is a good exercise in self control though, and it makes me look forward to lunch at work.
This salad also makes a great side dish to go with dinner. We ate it with baked salmon recently, and it was the perfect combination of savory salmon, with salty bacon, hearty veggies and a slightly sweet honey mustard dressing.
