1/2 Photos of Fruity-nutty Spinach Salad
Sweet, salty, crunchy, tender - this salad has it all. You can use real bacon, or like me, artificial bits and a dash of Liquid Smoke; I've included both alternatives. The pepper jelly in the dressing isn't hot, it just adds that rich pepper taste. A delicious salad! Serving amount is for salad eaten as a main dish. I've added cooking time for the bacon and hard-cooked eggs, if you don't already have them laying around to use.
