w. is for wilted spinach salad...

I'm Popeye the Sailor Man,I'm Popeye the Sailor Man. I'm strong to the finich, Cause I eats me spinach. I'm Popeye the Sailor Man.--Popeye

So, VintageTeal has been craving this recipe for a while now and so we thought we would post it so you guys can crave it too...It is fairly simple and so fulfilling you won't realize you are eating a salad. The warm bacon vinaigrette gives this salad a hearty taste that you can't achieve with ranch, even though, being that we live in the South, we like our ranch :)

Wilted Spinach Salad Ingredients
16 oz fresh spinach, washed
3-4 pieces bacon
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 c minced onion
1/8 tsp sugar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
sea salt/pepper
{whatever else you would like, ie. meat of choice or veggies of choice}
{...Also, we left this ingredient off, but traditional spinach salad is served with sliced hard boil eggs, which are fab on there if you have time!}

|1.| Wash and dry spinach and place in large salad serving bowl.
|2.| Fry bacon, and set aside to drain.
|3.| Leave bacon grease in pan and saute onions in grease.
|4.|Add oil olive, balsamic vinegar, salt/pepper and sugar to onion and grease mixture.
|5.| Drizzle warm bacon vinaigrette over spinach.
|6.| Let cool and then feel free to add any other veggies or top with shrimp or chicken if you would like.
Serves 2-4
