    This was a wonderful salad. The only thing I did different was to not add bacon. I love bacon but my friend doesn't so didn't put it in. I found the dressing so tasty with the spinach. Served this with my lasagna for lunch. Will be making this again for sure. Thanks for sharing mysonshine. I love healthy yummy salads. Yummy stuff !!!

    I am dieting so I made the dressing using Splenda and left out the bacon. It's a great salad and even DH who does not like raw spinach salads thought it was very good. A good salad that used things I happened to have in the fridge. Dressing is surprising tasty and complementary to the salad flavors.
