Directions

Salad:

For the dressing: Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp and cooked through. Drain on a paper-towel-lined plate, then chop and set aside. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the rendered bacon fat into a small bowl.

Add the shallots, vinegar, honey, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to the bowl with the bacon fat. Whisk until combined. Add the olive oil in a steady stream, while whisking. (The dressing should look creamy and thick.)

For the salad: Add the Brussels sprouts, pecans and the chopped bacon to a large bowl. Add the dressing, and toss. Plate the salad on a platter, top with the Parmesan, and serve.
