  --------      ------------       --------------------------------
  20           slices            bacon -- chopped  (if you want to use turkey or veggie bacon, have at it)
   1            cup                red wine vinegar
  3/4         cup                 honey
  1/2         cup                 lemon juice
   1            cup                 red onion -- chopped small
  1/2         cup                 green onion -- chopped small
                        salt and pepper -- to taste

1.  Fry bacon till barely crisp. (If you decide to use turkey bacon or a "fake"  bacon add some olive oil to your pan to  replace the fat that would render from regular bacon)

2.  Add red onion to the skillet and saute till soft.

3.  Add honey and lemon juice.  Stir till honey dissolves.

4.  Take a step back and add the red wine vinegar.......the fumes will open up your head!!   Bring to a boil and cook on a slow rolling boil for a couple of minutes.    Remove the skillet from the heat, turn the burner down to warm.   Keep the dressing warm till service.   Whisk again before you serve to keep it all incorporated.

Taste for seasonings and balance of sweet to sour.  

If you don't use all of this dressing in one sitting, be sure it is well stirred and blended and then refrigerate the leftovers.   Warm it up gently in a saucepan or skillet for the next salad.
