Hot Bacon Dressing

8 pieces of bacon chopped into pieces
4T vinegar (I used white wine vinegar and a little balsamic. Use whatever you have.)
1-2 T splenda (or sugar)
1 small red onion

Start your bacon in a small frying pan or a sauce pan. When it's done, pull out the bacon and place it on a paper towel to drain. Add onion into the leftover fat. While the onion is cooking, mix your vinegar and sugar in a small bowl or cup. Taste it to see that you like the sweet/sour balance. Adjust if necessary. Lower the temp and let it cool down for a bit. If you don't, the fat will pop all over the place when you add the vinegar mixture. Mix together and add to your salad. Serve right away.

I usually put this over a bed of spinach or another type of leaf that is fairly hearty. It needs to stand up to the heat. Iceburg lettuce does not work. This goes great with a little shrimp added in and some berries or mandarin orange also.
