I’m not a salad person, but I do enjoy spinach salad. Top that with bacon and you have my attention. Not to mention that the list of ingredients s short, full of basics, and the total time listed to make this recipe is just 10 minutes. I do enjoy a challenge, but I also appreciate quick and easy recipes, especially on weeknights. So let’s see if this salad is as good as it sounds!
This delicious Spinach and Bacon Salad is a breeze to prepare! The sweet dressing with the salty bacon keeps you wanting more!
The list of ingredients for this spinach salad is pretty short. In fact, I had all of the dressing ingredients on hand, so I only had to buy the spinach and croutons. I had 3 slices of bacon leftover from another recipe, and this salad sounded like the perfect way to use it up.
This spinach salad is one of the easiest recipes I have ever made. It only took a couple of minutes to mix up the dressing. I put all the ingredients into a small plastic container with a secure lid, gave it a really good shake, and popped it into the refrigerator overnight.
When I was ready to make the salad, I stemmed the spinach while the bacon was frying. It took me about 5 minutes to finish the spinach, and a few more for the bacon to get nice and crispy. Then it was just a matter of adding the spinach to a couple of bowls, topping it with the bacon, drizzling with the salad dressing, and tossing on a few croutons. The entire process took just 15 minutes.
