Warm Spinach Salad

Warm Spinach Salad created by katew

This recipe is courtesy of Splenda. It is a wonderful low-fat, no sugar, delicate spinach salad. The recipe calls for Turkey Bacon and I used 2 slices of regular bacon as well as reducing the amount of Splenda from 3 tablespoons to 2. Hope you enjoy!

    This made a lovely quick evening meal last night. I used cos instead of spinach and made my own croutons. Very nice indeed.

    I needed a fat-free salad dressing recipe and this fit the bill perfectly! I omitted the bacon and sauted the onion and garlic in only a drop of olive oil. Used only 1 1/2 tbsp of splenda and added about 2 tsp of red wine vinegar. This was very yummy served with baby spinach leaves and sliced apples. Will be made often :)

    I loved this! I used 2 pieces of turkey bacon from butterball which is 25 calories a slice! I also added a little balsamic vinegar , just because I love the way it taste with dijon mustard! I always felt guilty when I would eat the warm spinach salad from Applebees. Now I can Make my own with no guilt! Yum Yum! Thanks for posting!!!

    Replaced the croutons with sliced mushrooms cooked along with the turkey bacon. The results were really good. Next time I will cut the mustard by a teaspoon or so as I thought it was a little to heavy compared to the other flavors in the dish.
