I recently fell in love with meat-based salad dressings. They make your salad so much meatier. Choose your favorite cured meat, be it bacon, pancetta or some other means of charcuterie, but I like using soppressata because it's nice and fatty, and that fat renders out slightly, enhancing the dressing you're whisking it into. Paired with the crunchy texture of shaved Brussels sprouts, this salad makes a great first course or side dish. You can even use it as a slaw on burgers or sandwiches.
