Spinach Salad with Bacon Dressing

Spinach salad (640x424)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.
