Tips & Notes

Short on time? Buy pre-cut chunks of red onion in the produce department. You can also buy pre-cooked hard-boiled eggs.



  1. Place spinach in a large bowl.

  2. Fry bacon in medium skillet over medium heat until crisp, about five minutes. Remove, leaving grease in skillet.

  3. Return skillet to medium heat and add oil, onion, salt, pepper and sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, two to three minutes or until onion is slightly softened.

  4. Add vinegar and swirl to incorporate.

  5. Pour warm dressing over spinach and toss gently to wilt. Sprinkle bacon over the salad, grate the eggs and top with grape tomato slices.
