Of course, bacon hearts can top any salad, but here’s our favorite mix:

  • Baby spinach
  • Hard boiled eggs, sliced
  • Avocado, diced
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Homemade dressing (3 parts olive oil, 1 part red wine vinegar, 2 crushed garlic cloves, squirt of Dijon mustard and a dash of sea salt and Italian seasoning)

For the bacon hearts, I was inspired by The Paper Mama … hop over to read her baking instructions. The only thing I do different is that I use a baking pan with a nesting wire rack so the bacon doesn’t soak in all its grease. And, it seems like some bacon works better than others. You need thick and floppy bacon for perfect hearts – I use bacon from Zaycon.

Have a yummy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
