Ingredients

    6 ounces fresh baby spinach
    3 tablespoons cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    Pinch salt
    6 slices thick bacon, cut in 1/2" pieces
    1/2 medium red onion, sliced thin, 2 ounces
    1 clove garlic, minced
    4 hard boiled eggs, quartered

Directions

Place the spinach in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, Splenda, pepper and salt; set aside. Fry the bacon until crisp. With a slotted spoon, remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate. Measure out 3 tablespoons bacon grease and discard the rest.

Heat the bacon grease and sautee the onion 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 15 seconds. Add the vinegar mixture to the skillet and remove from the heat. Working quickly, scrape the brown bits off the bottom with a wooden spoon.

Pour the hot dressing over the spinach; add the bacon. Toss gently until spinach is slightly wilted. Divide among 4-6 salad plates and arrange eggs on the salads. Serve at once.

    I loved this salad and so has every person to whom I've served it! The flavors are a wonderful balance of sweet, sour and salty.

    Then there's the bacon factor...

    It made my Canadian friends smile!

    I have made it more than once and doubtless will again!

    Spectacular! I used pomegranate red wine vinegar, but I doubt it made much of a difference. This is just a fantastically flavorful dish! - 4/15/09

    Dee-lish! My only problem was I had turkey bacon and it didn't yield the fat needed to make the dressing, so I had to put a TB of olive oil...no biggie! - 4/4/09
