Loved this salad! I've made other similar spinach salads but this was by far the best. Colour contrasts make a great presentation too. I used baby spinach (more $ but better texture than mature) and cremini mushrooms. I did add another tbsp. sugar because we like our dressings somewhat on the sweet side, but that is just a personal preference Served it with a penne/asparagus/roasted red and yellow peppers/garlic dish. Guests declared it 'gooood!' Thanks!

Delicious! We sauteed some garlic and threw the mushrooms in it briefly to warm them up. Will definitely make again! Next time I may add some fruit like mango. Thank you!

Absolutely delicious! I wasn't sure about the bacon-grease based dressing, but wow...it was amazing. I served this salad with a 6 oz salmon fillet baked with butter and lemon. I will definitely be doing this again!

We have made this twice in a week! Dh isn't a big salad person, but in the last few years does like spinach salad. Even making a smaller version with less bacon and shrimp, this is a very tasty and easy recipe. Don't have the feta cheese, but was great even without it! Great recipe!
