Spinach Salad with Balsamic-Bacon Dressing

A super easy recipe for a really wonderful salad:

Fresh Spinach, rinsed and dried
2 slices of bacon, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, sliced
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Fry chopped bacon for about 5 minutes on medium high heat. When the bacon begins to crisp, about 5 minutes, add sliced onion to the frying pan and saute until onions are carmelized. (See picture for carmelization)

Drain fat from the pan, as seen in the picture. To drain fat, tilt the pan and push onions and bacon to the top of the pan. Allow fat to puddle in the bottom of the pan and soak up with paper towels, or pour into a glass jar to toss. Put the pan back onto the heat and deglaze the pan with the balsamic vinegar. Pour the bacon, onion dressing from the pan onto the spinach greens, toss, and serve.

Until next time...Happy Cooking!!!
