Do you know what takes a salad from just OK to outstanding? Cheese and bacon. This indulgent salad is sweet and salty, with the perfect amount of tanginess. If you would like to make the dressing ahead of time, warm it up before pouring it over the greens to make sure they wilt.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 10 cups torn stemmed Swiss chard (1 large bunch)
  • 8 cups thickly sliced cored halved radicchio (3 small heads)
  • 2 tart apples cored and thinly sliced
  • 195 g Camembert cheese cut in 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
Bacon Vinaigrette:
  • 6 slices bacon cut in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • pinch salt

Method

Bacon Vinaigrette: In nonstick skillet, cook bacon with oil over medium-high heat until bacon begins to sizzle; reduce heat to medium and cook until golden and beginning to crisp, about 10 minutes.

Remove bacon to paper towel–lined plate, reserving fat. Wipe out skillet. Return bacon fat to skillet; cook shallots over medium heat until beginning to soften, about 1 minute. Remove to large bowl; stir in maple syrup, vinegar, mustard and salt. Add Swiss chard, radicchio, apples, Camembert cheese and bacon to bowl; toss to coat.
