Warm Spinach Salad

Everyone is always writing about diets and about eating healthy, that is not what I am writing about. Although I usually like eating healthy, some days I just want to be bad. So I decided to make a really decadent salad. This salad is definitely not a healthy choice but it is so yummy.


1 cup bacon diced 1” x 1”

8 ounces baby spinach leaves

8 ounces sliced mushrooms

1 tbsp diced garlic

¼ cup cider vinegar

1 tbsp spicy mustard

1 tbsp honey

1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese crumbled

4 hard-boiled eggs


Cook bacon in a large skillet until crispy.

Remove bacon and place on paper towel to drain, leaving bacon fat in pan. Slice the mushrooms and add the mushrooms and garlic to pan and sauté for 4 minutes over medium heat.

Combine vinegar, mustard and honey with a whisk and then add to pan.

Cook for 1 minute and set pan aside. Place the spinach leaves onto 2 plates.

Divide mushroom mixture between both plates and drizzle the pan juices over the salad.

Sprinkle cheese and bacon on each plate.

Slice the hard-boiled eggs and use to garnish each salad.
