1/2 cup vertically sliced onion
2 cups bagged baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup Bacon Dressing

Preparation

1. Arrange layers of tomato slices and next 3 ingredients evenly on each of 4 serving plates. Drizzle salads evenly with Bacon Dressing.

Choice Ingredient

We recommend using heirloom tomatoes, which are grown from the seeds of old-fashioned varieties, because of their full-bodied flavor and dazzling palette of colors. They vary from red to yellow and from green to purplish black. Look for them at farmers' markets during the summer months.
