Bacon and Tomato Salad
Total: 30 minutes
6 servings

3 pounds tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
12 basil leaves, torn
1 small red onion, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3/4 pound sliced bacon
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
3/4 teaspoon Cajun spice mix
1-1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, minced

Dash of hot sauce and crusty bread, for serving

Preheat the oven to 450 Degrees F. In a bowl toss the tomatoes, basil, onion, olive oil and vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Let stand 15 minutes.

Set a wire rack on a baking sheet and arrange the bacon slices in a single layer on the rack. Bake the bacon in the upper third of the oven for 15 minutes, turning once, until golden and crisp-chewy. Let cool, then break into small pieces.

In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the mustard, curry powder, Cajun spice mix, lemon juice, garlic and hot sauce.

Sprinkle the bacon over the tomato salad and serve the mayonnaise and bread on the side.
