  • Summary

    You wouldn't normally think of a salad as being comfort food, but this is a salad you can really cozy up to thanks to the warm bacon and cider dressing. The warm dressing wilts the spinach so it is softened but retains its shape and toothsomeness. I am also comforted by this salad because even though it is decadent- with bacon- I can relax knowing I don't have to feel the least bit guilty about eating it.

    Ingredients

    • 10 ounces pre-washed baby spinach
    • 2 slices bacon, finely chopped
    • 3 ounces Canadian bacon, finely chopped
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 1/2 red onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
    • 1 pound button mushrooms, coarsely chopped
    • 1 cup apple cider
    • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • Salt and pepper
