Homemade Wheat Flatbread with Salad and Hot Bacon Honey Mustard Dressing

Lunch usually consists of a salad, especially during the summer months. Sometimes, the kids request a roll or breadsticks with their salads.

Flatbread makes a great accompaniment to most dishes, and the kids think it is fun when I cut it into wedges or strips.

This flatbread is super easy to make. I can throw it together in the morning while I am preparing breakfast. By lunchtime, we have a delicious side to enjoy with vegetables or assorted cheeses and meats.

This dish is also excellent served with homemade sour barley pita.

A long time ago, I remember having hot bacon dressing on my salad at a restaurant. My homemade version is just as good, if not better.

I adapted this recipe to use nitrate-free bacon to accommodate my dietary needs, but feel free to change the recipe up as you see fit.

Instructions
Whole Wheat Flat Bread
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and water.
  3. Form the dough into a ball.
  4. Cover the dough ball with a light dusting of flour.
  5. Flour your hands and spread the dough out onto a greased cookie sheet (you can use a greased pizza pan for a different shape.) Spread out the dough in a thin layer so that the entire pan is covered.
  6. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes. The longer the bread stays in the oven, the crispier it will become.
  7. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  8. Once cooled, cut as desired.
Salad
  1. In a large salad bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
Dressing
  1. In a medium skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Drain and set aside.
  2. Add mustard, honey, and vinegar to small saucepan.
  3. Bring to a boil.
  4. Dice bacon and stir into the dressing.
  5. Pour hot dressing over salad and toss to coat.
  6. Place a piece of the whole wheat flat bread on a large plate. Top with salad and dressing and enjoy.

  1. This recipe called my name when I saw it. This is just about everything I could ask for, all in one place. I can’t believe how simple your flat bread recipe is. I don’t have any whole wheat flour on hand, and I’m not sure if it would come out as well with white flour, so I will try to pick some up. My favorite salads are served with pita bread, and this dressing sounds amazing. I can’t wait to try making this recipe!

  2. I never made flat bread before but this recipe looks simple enough for someone like me to make. I love all the photos of this dish. Simple and elegant.

  3. I love the fact that the recipe includes how to make the flat bread. I thought for sure that it was store bought when looking at the pictures. The recipe sounds like a really tasty sub, but it’s a wrap instead. This homemade recipe looks better than what I’d find in stores or a restaurant, and is probably healthier, too.

  4. Bacon sounds always like a good idea and I hadn’t really thought about making hot dressing for salad. It sounds like it’ll go well with the flatbread though, especially fresh from the oven. I really like easy recipes with no kneading required, it always takes so long. I’m not a huge fan of mustard so I guess I’ll try to cut the amount down with creme fraiche or something like that.

    I really love your pictures by the way, you made this look extremely colorful and aesthetic!

  5. This recipe looks simply delicious. I would probably roll it up to eat as a wrap. The homemade bread is a very nice touch. We’re planning on making salads for lunch tomorrow, I may need to swap out our dressing to try that hot bacon vinaigrette. Yum!

  6. As with so many other things, I didn’t know making my own flat bread was so simple. I enjoy it quite a bit, so I’m looking forward to giving it a whirl. It’s great with so many foods, I particularly love it with hummus and veggies.

    • I was just thinking that. I presumed that making flat bread would be a pain. Now that I know better, I’ll be making some. Simple, and it will cost a lot less, for sure. It’s expensive around here.

      I also figured that hot bacon dressing would be way too fattening, although of course, it sounded really good. Now, I can give that a try as well. I think I just found my new favorite lunch (or even light dinner). It’s nice to have something less heavy during the summer and I dread turning on the oven, so this will work.

  7. Bacon, mustard, honey and I come calling in a heart-beat as they all are my favorite, I especially love the saltiness of bacon, add the sweetness of honey and am in a different place altogether 😉 . This is a recipe worth trying out 🙂

    • It depends on the brand I suppose. I feel that anything homemade is healthier in that you know what you are putting in it. You can be assure there are no preservatives or additive in the ingredients. For people with food allergies or sensitivities, sometimes homemade is the only option.

  8. I’d made flatbread before, as an impoverished student many moons ago and can’t believe I’d forgotten how cheap and easy it was to make. I think there’s going to be a flatbread renaissance at my house this weekend!

  9. My mouth was watering after I read the title (bacon, anyone?), but I was drooling by the time I got to the picture of it. Beautiful recipe! I’d probably try it without the red onion, however, as I’m not a big fan of raw onions. Overall, however, it sounds amazing, and I can’t wait to try it. 🙂

  10. Wow! Who would of thought making flat bread could be so easy? I always buy mine at the store already made because I didn’t know how to make it, and frankly I never thought of looking up recipe for it. I’m so happy I stumbled into this recipe, because I’m never buying flat-bread ever again!

  11. I love any type of bread and flatbread is a firm favorite in our home. We learned how to make it from the local Indian community who use this as a wrap for their spicy foods. I love the idea of having it with a salad. This is a new and refreshing idea.

  12. I know I didn’t just read bacon and honey mustard in the same title! Yes, I did! Lovely! I am definitely going to give this recipe a whirl. But, I’m going to be naughty and add some grilled chicken and avocado!

  13. Hot bacon honey mustard dressing? Oh yes! Oh yes! This is definitely a new kind salad and salad dressing for me. I’m actually surprised at how easy it is to make. I’m used to ordinary Caesar salads with eggs, onions, bell peppers, croutons, grilled chicken, and shredded cheese. The flat bread doesn’t fit so well in my opinion. Never really liked it. However, bacon makes anything tastes better! I would devour this salad.

  14. A very American Southern debutante girlfriend of mine taught me how to make a salad dressing a long time ago that utilized just a bit of bacon grease drippings in the recipe. It has been a favorite of mine for years. In fact, I pretty much love any kind of dressing that has bacon in it. This is definitely going to be a great salad!
