Spinach, Bacon & Mushroom Salad

Spinach, Bacon & Mushroom Salad created by Debi9400

The evening before our oldest son was born, I made a big bowl of this--a friend had told me that spinach was full of Vitamin K, which was supposed to help with nosebleeds (which I'd been having). Even though my water had already broke, I went ahead and ate supper--figuring a first baby would take its time showing up. And I was right---it was almost exactly 24 hours later before he was born. The following year, we had this for his birthday dinner (along with Spaghetti Alla Carbonara--which was "leftovers" for supper the night before he was born). That started a family tradition, so when each of our children was born, we made a note of our dinner menu--so their birthday dinners are very special!

    Just what I was looking for! Sauteed some mushrooms in the bacon drippings and removed them to the salad before adding the vinegar mixture to the pan for the dressing. Threw in a sliced avocado because it needed to be used. Mmmm, fabulous dinner. Thanks.

    This was exactly what the Dr. ordered. Had this for our Sunday lunch and it really hit the spot. Thanks for the great, heart healthy recipe. The only thing I did not put in was the optional radishes....forgot to buy them!

    I just *LOVED* this salad. So simple to make, and the flavour was fantastic. I garnished with boiled eggs and thick slices of mushrooms. Mmmmmm. Thanks Debber, I'll be making this again...probably later today. :) Made for: Heart Healthy Tag ~ Feb 2010 - Diabetic Forum
