Wilted Kale and Bacon Salad

When I was a kid my Mom used to make a wilted spinach salad. I loved it. I used that as inspiration for this dish. I had a big bunch of kale from a local farm market. I also had some fresh local eggs.  I wanted something fast for dinner and wilted salad came to mind. What I ended up having was even better than expected. Smoky bacon, onion and a touch of maple syrup made this a dish I plan on having again soon.

Wilted Kale Salad With Bacon

2-3 slices thick sliced bacon, chopped

1 onion, sliced

4-5 cups kale, washed and torn into pieces

2 T. cider vinegar

1 T. maple syrup

dash of hot sauce

2 hard- cooked eggs, peeled and cubed

In skillet cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon from pan and set aside. Remove some of the fat from the pan- leaving about 2 tablespoonfuls. Add onion and cook until golden. Return bacon to pan and add the kale. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until kale in wilted. I don’t mind my kale on the firm side-cook it longer if you like it more tender. Drizzle in the vinegar, maple syrup and hot sauce and stir to coat evenly. Place on a serving dish and top with the eggs. Enjoy!!
