    this was a nice salad, we liked the spinach wilted . Sorry I just couldn't bring myself to use the bacon grease for a dressing so I cooked the bacon crisp in the microwave and used olive oil to make the dressing, turned out very nice. loved the mushroom, spinach, green onion and especially the strawberries, thanks for posting.
