A lovely spinach salad with warm bacon-mustard dressing – an excellent side or eaten as is. Very light, has great textures and flavours. One of my favourite salad recipes because it’s healthy, light, and made with a few simple ingredients not to mention it has bacon. Everything with bacon is a must!

This is one of my go-to for when I have guests coming over. It’s the perfect accompaniment for many meals. And all love this simple, easy, and quick spinach salad.
