    Slatts's Note:

    This is a great classic spinach salad with hot bacon dressing. I like it because the dressing is made with staples I always have in my kitchen so all I need to do is pick up some fresh spinach. You can add what you like to the salad: eggs, nuts, fruit, etc. This is from "Gourmet Magazine". If you've never attempted a spinach salad with hot bacon dressing this is an easy and impressive recipe that tastes yummy!

      Too much cider vinegar. I would have put more sugar in it. With some tweaking, it's a keeper.

      What a lovely surprise! I made this salad tonight and it was lovely! I made as listed, but substituted Truvia for the sugar. I also added about one tablespoon more of olive oil to the dressing. If you allow the mixture to boil a little while, the mixture did thicken and lost some of the pungent cider vinegar smell. My DH was skeptical, but ended up having seconds and requesting it to be put on the menu. He even suggested that we make it for a dinner party for his parents! Will make again and look forward to trying variations as listed in some of the reviews! Thanks for sharing Slatts!
