Spinach Salad

Here's my signature Christmas Salad -


Toss:

Spinach
Sliced Mushrooms
Red Onion
Toasted Almonds
Craisins
Crumbled Bacon

Dressing:

1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. olive oil
1/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. poppy seeds
1/2 tsp. dry mustard


Substitute xylitol for sugar and turkey bacon for bacon if you want to be more healthy. Also, for flavor's sake, NO Bacon bits or "real bacon" bits - it's just not the same. Cook your bacon/turkey bacon up from fresh and crumble it.


* Disclaimer * this is a "green salad", but do not be under the assumption that since it contains a lot of greens that it you can eat all you want - seeing as it's coated with that crave inducing sugary vinegar dressing and greasy bacon you will want to go back for seconds. It is OH SO GOOD, but remember, usually if they taste this good to your tongue they are not that good for your waist. Which is why we indulged on this salad for our holiday parties this week but Parties are Over! and I'm back on the wagon with my resolutions today on new years eve - Getting a jump start on the new year, (which means only one piece of cheese cake today!) oh yeah.
