Shaved Asparagus and Frisee Salad with a Warm Bacon Honey Vinaigrette

The humble breakfast salad deserves a more prominent place as part of a brunch spread. It is also as a fantastic, light complement to your standard eggs, toast, and bacon.

This light salad is a perfect way to change things up a bit in the morning while still incorporating some of the old standbys. In this instance, bacon adds a savory punch as part of the honey-infused vinaigrette.
