I have made this recipe several times for friends and each time it has been a huge success. Pair it with pumpkin soup and you will have a delicious fall meal!
Seared Scallops over Bacon and Spinach Salad with Cider Vinaigrette

After receiving rave reviews from my husband, this salad will go into my arsenal. It's a great melding of flavors and textures. I omitted the red onions and found that to be just fine because of the shallots in the dressing (I may have added more than the recipe called for). I think I'd skip the salt on the scallops next time because there was enough flavor without it. The salt sort of overpowered the curry and red pepper. A delicious all-inclusive dinner salad!

The spinach salad was really good, but the scallops didn't seem to go with it in terms of flavors, and the water in the scallops made them difficult to sear. I would use this as a spinach salad alone.

This salad is so delicious! It's one of my favorite summertime meals!

Our favorite cooking light recipe of ALL TIME! If you are big on seafood, this dish is amazing. I was hesitant at first to buy cider vinagrette, thinking how much would I really use this? However, many of the cooking light recipes call for it so it's worth the purchase. The scallops came out perfectly cooked and well seasoned. You will be a 'Top Chef' with this one!

Had this with a group of friends. Prepped most everything ahead of time except for the apples and cooking the scallops. I cooked the scallops right before dinner and reheated the dressing in the microwave just a tad to have the warmer dressing. It was amazing - restaurant quality! p.s. I doubled the bacon. Why not?!

Excellent gourmet salad. I didn't have the apple cider so juiced an apple. Skipped the bacon as we are trying to eat less animal protein, but imagine it would have added wonderful flavor.
