Wilted spinach salad with warm bacon vinaigrette

This was just a quick and pretty healthy lunch. Yes, there's bacon, but only one slice and it's made from frozen pre-cooked bacon so most of the fat has been rendered from it.

Olive oil
Shallot, finely minced
1 slice cooked bacon, minced
Red wine vinegar
Dijon mustard

Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook for a few minutes. Add the bacon and cook for another couple minutes.

Reduce the heat, add the vinegar, mustard and stir or whisk to combine thoroughly. Heat for a minute then turn off the heat. Add salt and freshly ground pepper.

Add fresh spinach and toss or stir. Cover for a few minutes until the spinach is softened.


This would probably be good with a little goat cheese or bleu cheese on it, too.
