DIRECTIONS

  • Microwave bacon for about five minutes (cover with paper towel) or until almost crisp.
  • Reserve bacon grease for hot bacon dressing (if making).
  • Microwave almonds for two minutes (stirring once) in same plate used for cooking bacon.
  • While those items are being microwaved, wash and chop green onions finely.
  • Put spinach in large serving bowl.
  • Explain that it represents the Christmas tree which will later be made into the cross of Christ.
  • Add green onions.
  • Add dried cranberries.
  • Explain that the red symbolizes Christ's blood shed on the cross to pay the price for our sin.
  • Crumble in bacon.
  • Crumble in feta.
  • Explain that the white stands for Christ's innocent blood washing away our sins and making us pure.
  • Sprinkle with almonds.
  • Stir in dressing (there are many great recipes for hot bacon and sweet and sour dressings on Zaar, but if you're in a hurry, just mix up vinegar, oil or bacon drippings, sugar, salt).
