Warm Spinach Salad
Makes 4 Servings
Preparation Time 15 minutes
One 7 oz bag Baby Spinach Greens
1/2 Cup Fat Free Salad Croutons
1/4 Cup White Wine Vinegar
1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Dijon Mustard
2 teaspoons sugar
5 Slices Turkey Bacon
1/4 Cup Chopped Red Onion
2 cloves Garlic, minced
Place spinach greens in a bowl. Remove any undesirable leafs or large stems. Add croutons.
Blend together vinegar, water, mustard and sugar or "Splenda" Granular. Set aside.
Finely slice bacon into small strips. Place in a medium sized saucepan and fry over medium high heat until almost crispy (approximate 3-4 minutes). Add onion and garlic and cook over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes.
Add the vinegar mixture and simmer 1-2 minutes.
Pour over spinach and croutons. Toss well. Garnish each serving with 2-3 fresh Strawberries when in Season or Mandarin Orange Slices. Serve immediately.
* Regular fresh spinach may be used in place of baby spinach but will result in a less delicate salad.
