  • Summary

    Bacon in a salad doesn't necessarily scream "healthy!" but because the meat is used in moderation, this dish is still a winner. Just two slices (for four servings) impart a smoky flavor into the vinaigrette that coats the greens.

    Ingredients

    • 2 bunches baby turnips with greens (about 1 1/2 pounds), trimmed, greens reserved, turnips cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1/4 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons grainy mustard
    • 4 cups baby spinach, washed well
    • 1 ounce bacon (about 2 slices), thinly sliced crosswise
    • 1 shallot, minced
    • 2 tablespoons pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
