Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

Over a bed of fresh spinach, chopped pecans and bacon, the warm slightly sweet, mustardy vinaigrette pours into all the nooks and crannies and just barely softens the spinach.  Gather up the perfect bite with a little taste of each element…mmm.

This is a hearty salad and could easily be a meal in and of itself. It also makes a good side dish for roasted chicken.

If you are following the Feingold Diet, be sure to use approved spicy brown mustard and bacon.
