Simpatico: Wilted Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Wilted Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing

I have been super busy since the first of the year trying to tame my house... in other words, culling items I do not ever wear, throwing away the broken and unfix-able, and doing a deep clean. It has needed it for a while, and as it has been sunny, albeit cold, I have been motivated to finish my tasks.

What I haven't been motivated to do is cook. :) Last night was one of those nights... the OMG what am I gonna fix for dinner kinda nights. Luckily for me, I always have the makings of this salad. Now, its not the healthiest of salads, but it is rich on flavor!!! It is the type of salad you could have every single day, but the cardiologists in my family would probably severely frown upon it.

So, enjoy my bad but oh, so good for you salad.

Wilted Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing

* 10 to 12 ounces fresh spinach, washed and torn into bit-size pieces
* 1/4 cup minced red onion
* 2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
* 8 slices bacon
* 3 tablespoons bacon drippings
* 3 tbsp. sugar
* 3 tbsp. vinegar
* 2 tbsp. water
* 1 tsp. salt
* 1/4 tsp. pepper

Place prepared spinach in a large bowl, add onions, the chopped egg and refrigerate, tightly covered.
Fry the bacon until crisp; remove to paper towel and set aside. In a small bowl combine drippings with sugar, vinegar, water, salt and pepper.
Toss the greens lightly with the hot dressing. Top with crumbled bacon.

I served mine with hot french bread and my olive oil with spice mix on the side for dipping.
