Warm Spinach salad with bacon and pine nuts

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Belle Vix

this is such an easy low carb recipe. It comes from the 'Dr Atkins quick and easy new diet cookbook'. theres 18g per serving, but these come from the nuts, so exclude them if you're in the first few weeks.

Fantastic salad, have used sliced almonds and pecans as well. My husband loves it as long as I use turkey bacon!
