Recipe by Sun Green
I love spinach salad but I live alone and hate to make a full recipe since any leftovers get way too wilted. I came up with this recipe by modifying a Betty Crocker cookbook version. You can definitely play around with the amounts of the ingredients. I don't actually measure out the lemon juice - I squeeze some into the oil, and drizzle a little more over the finished salad if it's not lemony enough. This makes a good sized bowl for one person, and if you want seconds it's so easy to make some more. You can also double/triple the ingredients for company!

This is an excellent salad. I was going solo tonight and this was perfect to complete my meal. I did carry this one step further and added some juicy, ripe strawberries along with a sprinkling of toasted pine nuts.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic, minced (I use one of those frozen cubes)
- 1 slice cooked bacon, cut up
- feta cheese
- fresh spinach (I use the pre-washed bagged kind)
