This simple spinach salad packs a lot of punch with a tangy, salty, sweet Hot Bacon Dressing that you will not be able to get enough of!
Place bacon drippings, mustard, honey, champagne vinegar, and shallots in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer and simmer for 3-5 minutes until dressing becomes thick. Add crumbled bacon and stir. Serve warm over spinach salad.
Arrange equal amounts of spinach, sliced mushrooms, sliced hardboiled eggs, red onion slices and crumbled bacon in 6 salad bowls. Drizzle with hot bacon dressing and serve.
I like to cook my bacon in an oven (400°F for 20-ish minutes or until done to your desired crispness), but feel free to cook yours in a skillet if you prefer. When I'm making bacon, I usually cook extra (and reserve the bacon drippings) so that I can use them for this recipe!
