Fresh spinach paired with bacon grease! Can’t say it is low fat but it is a great salad in spring when spinach is abundant.
Spinach Salad with Bacon Dressing
1 pound fresh spinach
4 green onions and tops, sliced
Coarsely ground black pepper
5 slices bacon, diced (I used 3 slices of thick sliced bacon)
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 coarsely chopped hard-cooked egg
1. Wash spinach, discarding stems. Pat dry on paper towels, then tear in bite-size pieces in bowl. Add onions and sprinkle with pepper. Chill.
2. At serving time, slowly fry bacon bits until crisp-cooked. Remove from burner and add vinegar, lemon juice, sugar and salt.
3. Add spinach (or pour over spinach); toss just till leaved are coated and wilted slightly. Sprinkle with chopped egg.
