When I am preparing food for people to self serve, I think about how it'll look in 30 minutes. This salad tastes fantastic but also holds up well on a buffet.
The lovely sweetness of proper bacon and savoy cabbage pairs perfectly with Ceres Black Rabbit Riesling. It's a wonderful and clever match. I'd serve this with a late night bacon sandwhich too.
200 g free range streaky bacon (we use Henderson's)
1/2 Savoy cabbage, but all the dark green outer leaves
1 teasoon honey
1 teaspoon dijon
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons local macadamia, olive or avocado oil
Juice of 1 lemon
