Low Carb Breakfast Salad

I've been thinking about how I can get more vegetables into my morning. I came up with this crazy idea of making a breakfast salad! Who would have thunk?

1 cup lettuce and / or spinach, torn very small
1 boiled egg, diced
2 slices of bacon, crumbled (save the bacon grease)
1/2 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
3 cherry tomatoes, cut into fourths

Toss the salad with bacon dressing.

Bacon Dressing: Put 3 T. of the bacon grease (the fat) into a small saucepan. Add 3 T. of red wine vinegar, a dash of salt and pepper, 1/2 tsp. of Dijon mustard, and a few drops of Stevia (or a tsp. of Splenda). Whisk the mixture over low heat until warm. Pour over your breakfast salad! Approximately 3 carbs.
