When you add sweet red onions, sliced hard boiled eggs, crispy chopped bacon and fresh baby spinach the flavors alone, help overpower the vinegar and you really can’t tell. Did I mention that bacon grease is used in the salad dressing? Winner!
Spinach Salad With Hot Bacon Dressing
- a bag of baby spinach
- 3-4 peeled hard boiled eggs, quartered
- 4 – 5 slices cooked bacon, crumbled or diced
- half a red onion, sliced thin
- croutons, roughly a cup
That’s not the magic — the magic is in the hot dressing!
- 3-4 tbsp. bacon grease
- 2 slices bacon, crumbled
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tbsp. ketchup
- 1 tbsp. chopped onion
- 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Place the bacon grease in the pan. Add all ingredients but the bacon, and 1 tsp corn starch. Bring it to a boil, thrn drop it to a simmer to let it thicken. (5 min or so). Fold in the bacon and quickly pour it over your spinach salad.
Now, rip into it like a monkey on a cupcake!
