Bacon & Poached Egg Salad

Are you ready for a salad that could be a meal? Well ITS HERE! Vintage Cookery has put together some summer time veggies and Farm2Counter extras (available to add to any bag!) and made a kick-butt salad.

This is a salad of compliments. We've paired savory smokey bacon, and sweet candied honey pecans. Tangy powerful balsamic dressing and rich & silky poached egg. All on delicate Boston Bibb lettuce. This salad is guaranteed to please! Also check out How to Poach an Egg.

Take pecans and pour mixture onto baking sheet lined with parchment and allow to cool. Store in ziplock bag.

In a bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, thyme, and salt and whisk together. Slowly pour olive oil into bowl while whisking continually until combined.
