Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing

Take some very-good-for-you fresh spinach and mess it up with not-good-for-you bacon dressing. Yum. 

1 lb. fresh spinach
4 green onions and tops, sliced
Coarsely ground black pepper

5 slices of bacon, diced
2 tbl. wine vinegar
1 tbl. lemon juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

Optional: Chopped hard cooked egg 

Wash spinach, discarding stems. Pat dry on paper towels and tear into bite-sized pieces. Add onions and sprinkle with pepper. Chill. 

At serving time, slowly fry the bacon pieces until crisp. Add vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, and salt and mix well. Add spinach. Toss until leaves are coated and wilted just slightly. Serve sprinkled with chopped egg, if you must. 

Serves 4 to 6.
