    Excellent salad, with the "wilting" providing a twist from the usual. Made to recipe except drained the bacon fat prior to assembling the vinaigrette. Served before CL's pork with lemon caper sacue.

    My sister requests this salad for every one of our weekly lunches together! My husband doesn't care for the overt vinegar taste, but that just means more for me! I used this same dressing on blanched green beans to great reviews from family.

    Pretty salad, but we thought the vinegar was too strong. We've had better spinach salads.

    I made this today for the first time and I thought it was terrific! This will be my new go to Vinaigrette. It was very easy to make and it balanced the flavors very well! This would be great for a simple salad or even for entertaining guests!.

    I made this today and strayed a little from the recipe (spring mix greens, celery, and carrot), and it was amazing! If you love salads, vinaigrette, and bacon you are going love this salad. So, low in calories you could grill some chicken and it would be delish!.
