Hot Asparagus Bacon Salad
7 bacon strips
1 lb. fresh asparagus, trimmed
1/3 cup vinegar
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 cups salad greens
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2 hardboiled eggs, sliced

In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towel. Reserve 2-3 Tbsp. bacon drippings.

Cut asparagus into 1.5" piece; sautee in drippings until crisp-tender.

Add vinegar, sugar, mustard, pepper and bacon. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the salad greens and almonds. Add the asparagus mixture and toss gently.

Top with egg slices. Serve immediately.
