“This is a great classic spinach salad with hot bacon dressing. I like it because the dressing is made with staples I always have in my kitchen so all I need to do is pick up some fresh spinach. You can add what you like to the salad: eggs, nuts, fruit, etc. This is from "Gourmet Magazine". If you've never attempted a spinach salad with hot bacon dressing this is an easy and impressive recipe that tastes yummy!”
