Spinach Salad with Bacon Dressing
1 lb. fresh spinach
1/2 cup sliced green onion
dash of pepper
5 slices bacon
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 hard-boiled egg (I use two because I like eggs)
Shredded cheese (optional)
Toss spinach with onion and pepper. Chill.
Slowly fry bacon until crisp. Remove from pan.
Break into pieces and add to spinach, with hard-boiled egg and shredded cheese if desired.
Add vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, and salt to fat in pan and stir until dissolved. Use as dressing.

before adding them to the bacon fat
With an abundance of spinach in the garden, we've made this a couple times recently. Keith and I can eat the whole salad for dinner. Add some good bread and you're set. Really, is there anything that bacon doesn't make better?
