They say bacon makes everything better, and if you try this salad I think you’ll agree.
This is so easy to make, and it tastes so good, this recipe could easily become a weekly favorite.
How to make it
The hardest part of this dish is cooking the bacon, which, if you know how to do that, everything else is super simple.
For starters, slice the bacon into small pieces, about 1/2- to 1/4-inch thick. Then place it in a cold skillet and turn the heat on to medium (or medium high if you want to speed it up a teensy bit.)
Watch for when the bacon is almost to your liking, then add the vinegar and use a spatula to scrape any brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
Next, add the sugar, salt, and pepper, and stir well.
Finally, add the spinach and green onions, and stir constantly until all the spinach is wilted.
Then, remove it from heat, plate it up, and serve warm.
(And don’t be surprised if your guests ask you to cook for them every night!)
Why I like this recipe
Um… did you not see that it has bacon! jk jk…
But for real…
I love salad, but I get really tired of always eating the same salad… and I feel this recipe adds some nice variety into the mix.
It’s also so easy to make, it can fit into almost anyone’s busy schedule.
But mostly, I like this recipe because it tastes amazing. Even though it’s only a few basic ingredients, the flavors work together so well, I never want the dining experience to end.
So go ahead, and make this dish tonight, then come back tomorrow and let me know how you like it.
