This salad combines crispy thick-cut bacon with baby spinach, boiled eggs, mushrooms, and a tangy-sweet warm bacon vinaigrette. Since the dish requires cooking and needs to be prepared right before serving, it is usually served as a main course, with a store-bought rotisserie chicken or broiled salmon on the side. It’s also wonderful with potato leek soup. To save time, use pre-washed baby spinach, pre-sliced mushrooms (and even pre-cooked boiled eggs, if you like) — and pick up a fresh baguette to round out the meal.
