A classic dressing for spinach salad, but it's also wonderful on other veggies like fresh green beans. Even the avowed green bean hater in the family tried them with this dressing and went back for seconds!

I have been looking for this recipie for soooooo long. IT WAS PERFECT. I thought that 6 pieces of bacon would not be enough but I followed the recipe anyway and just used 6 pieces and it turned out AWESOME. The entire family thanks you.

Didn't have any vegetable oil on hand, substituted extra virgin olive oil instead. Turned out well, will use from now on.
