As summer progresses and fall nips the air, the salad greens in my garden become chewier until suddenly it is time for hot bacon salad, which wilts the greens and adds a salty bite to their bitter-sweet taste. Lardons of smoked bacon, cut into a meaty dice, are perfect for this salad. The yolk of the lightly poached egg should burst at the touch of a fork, helping dress the green leaves.
