Warm Spinach Salad
Not all salads need to be served cold or at room temperature. This one is perfect especially in the winter since it has smokey bacon (or spicy pancetta), the richness of dijon mustard, and of course the sweetness of the shallots. This is super easy too.
- 4-5 Strips of Pre-cooked bacon or 3 ounces of Diced Pancetta
- 1 Bag of Fresh Spinach
- 1 Shallot diced/chopped
- 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
- 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons Spring Water
Heat the bacon or pancetta until it is brown and crispy. Add in the diced shallots and continue to cook for a few minutes. You want the shallots soft but not burnt. Deglaze with red wine vinegar and whisk in dijon mustard. Once smooth, add in your water to thin it out and cut some of the acidity and spiciness of the mustard until it is like a thick (but not too thick) of a dressing. Pour over your spinach, toss, and serve.
