More Bacon – Salad Recipe

Well, it looks likspinach-salad-ck-1714539-le bacon has become my theme for the week.  So, today I’m giving you one of my new favorite recipes.  This Spinach Salad recipe is from Cooking Light and while it is super easy to make, it looks like it took a lot of work.  And, since it has bacon, everyone loves it (including Jeff who doesn’t like vegetables!).



  • 1/4  cup  maple syrup
  • 3  tablespoons  minced shallots (about 1 medium)
  • 2  tablespoons  red wine vinegar
  • 1  tablespoon  canola oil
  • 1  tablespoon  country-style Dijon mustard
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1  garlic clove, minced
  • 1  cup  sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2  cup  vertically sliced red onion
  • 1/2  cup  chopped Braeburn apple (I prefer Fuji)
  • 4  bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
  • 1  (10-ounce) package fresh spinach


Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add mushrooms and remaining ingredients; toss well to coat. Makes 8 servings.

See – SUPER easy!
