As the weather gets warmer I love to introduce more salads into my meals. This spinach salad with warm bacon dressing is actually a salad that I fell in love with years ago. I first tasted it at a local restaurant. Of course, the dressing was that restaurant’s house dressing. And it was so tasty that it really stuck in my mind. Luckily, one of my friends had made a similar recipe and was willing to share it with me.
I have tried this recipe with three different types of vinegar….apple cider, balsamic and red wine. You can substitute any of them, but it will change the taste. I ultimately decided that I liked the organic red wine vinegar that I used the best. The other two were just a little too strong for this dressing and overpowered the bacon a bit (and we can’t have that now, can we?)
This recipe is both gluten-free and grain-free. Just make sure you use gluten and grain-free vinegar (yep….vinegar can have one or the other!)
