My favorite salad as of late is sliced Avocado, HB eggs, crispy salad greens, bacon, green onons, tomatoes. I add white wine vinegar to the bacon drippings, season with black pepper, and the slightest drizzle of local honey and that the dressing. AWESOME. Loaded with good fat.
The specialty oils: walnut, macadamia, and avocado have pretty good ratios. These are ridiculously expensive though. I used to buy the small dark bottles of flax oil that has to be refrigerated, but it seems that the omega-3s can't be absorbed in a high ratio.
Raw egg yolk is traditional, but not recommended these days due to fear of salmonella in commercial eggs. Mashed cooked egg yolk is also traditional. Blend with fresh lemon juice and season with salt, pepper, garlic and tarragon.
Hot dressings of red wine vinegar and bacon fat are traditional, too. Include bacon bits, sliced green onions and garlic.
Funny as this sounds, If any of you live near a TJ Maxx or Marshalls/HomeGoods Store, check in the kitchen section for those oils! Alot of companies discontinue them because they don't sell due to price, so these stores get them and they are still PLENTY FRESH and in date. For Instance, I got roasted Walnut Oil and Almond Oil for 3.99 Each! store them in the fridge and you are all set.
