Notes about this recipe

  • Breadcrumbs on September 02, 2015

    p. 72 - I love spinach salads with a warm dressing so it was a no-brainer to put this on my “must-try” list this month. The recipe produces a good spinach salad and is quicker to prepare than more traditional versions that use bacon fat in the dressing. The AGP recipe calls for cooked, crumbled bacon and uses evoo in place of the bacon fat in the dressing. I always have cooked bacon in my freezer so this made for a quick, do-able weeknight salad. We liked this salad but didn’t love it. I missed the bite of the red onion that’s typically added and we also missed the cooked egg. I wouldn’t make this version again as there are other versions out there more aligned to our tastes. Nevertheless, this is a good spinach salad recipe, just not our favourite.
