Creative Cooking Crew Challenge: nut butter, green apples, bacon, vinegar

Has it been another month already? Where does the time go? Well Joan and Lazaro have put forth our monthly challenge and this time it was a basket of goodies and we had to use them all. The ingredients are: nut butter, green apples, bacon and vinegar. I said to myself - no problemo - I knew what I was going to do immediately.
I made green apple "caviar" and I candied some bacon with maple syrup and brown sugar and I made some peanut butter snow and I made a green apple vinaigrette - all of this went on my arugula and strawberry salad.
Thats pretty much all she wrote! And as the first three letters in my paragraphs suggest - this was a
big HIT!

I want to learn to make "caviar" and dust. I like the different textures and colors. The ingredients easily lend themselves to a salad, I like the idea of the strawberries.
