Dump Salad Recipe

Yeah, ok, so this may sound gross, but it’s a super delicious salad!  I like to call this my Dump Salad because it’s loaded dumpSaladwith wholesome goodies that are also leftovers from several other dinners cooked last week!  :) You must try this and let me know what you think!


Dump Salad:

  • Red or Green leaf lettuce – washed and ready to eat
  • 2 slices of crispy Bacon
  • Crispy chunks of cooked red potatoes
  • Blue Cheese chunks
  • Sliced Tomatoes
  • Avocado slices
  • 1 Hard-boiled egg
  • Bacon Dressing

Bacon Dressing:  This is super easy to make – I like to cook my bacon slices on a roaster pan with slats in my oven so all the bacon drippings drip to the bottom pan.  After I cook the bacon I reserve all the drippings and pour them into a sauce pan and add a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar and crumble 1 slice of bacon into the mixture.  Heat until it boils and you are done! It’s amazing and tastes so good on the salad.  A little goes a LONG way too!20150901_121351

The salad is super easy to throw together, especially if you have made some of the other items days earlier for other recipes.  I like to use bacon in a lot of recipes, so I’ll cook up a whole package and try to use the rest throughout the week when I need an extra crunch.  We also keep a lot of hard-boiled eggs on hand for the whole week to grab as a quick protein packed snack and my kids love them in their lunches.  The red potatoes are a regular side item in our house for dinners, so I just usually make a little extra any time I make them so we can use them in this salad, or as a side along with scrambled eggs for breakfast in the morning.  When all these things are on hand, this is a really easy lunch salad to throw together!

Keep in mind, you can “dump” other things on this salad from your leftovers, some sliced chicken, or ham, might be really nice.  You can also experiment with different cheeses, like feta and maybe some olives and pepperoni slices would be yummy as well.  There are so many ways you can go with this idea of a Dump Salad, so have fun and experiment!

Hope you love it as much as I do!  Try it out and let me know what you think, and let me know if you made any substitutions!  I’d love to know what combination of ingredients you like best!  Hugs!
