Directions

  1. Trim the rind from the bacon and cut into 1 inch cubes. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until brown and crispy. Cover and reduce heat to lowest setting to keep bacon warm.
  2. In a small, dry skillet, toast curry powder over medium heat, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Add oil in a thin stream, whisking constantly, until the oil is completely incorporated. Add curry powder and whisk until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together the bacon, spinach, mushrooms and vinaigrette until evenly coated. Adjust salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.

I made this for dinner the other night and it was a big hit with my husband and myself. I added some tomatoes and some shrimpmeat - I couldn't get the thick bacon so I used regular bacon, crumbled into the salad. Excellent.

This is for the vinaigrette alone...not one of those oh-my-God type of recipes. But a keeper.

I just made a simple green salad with the dressing and it was FABULOUS! Even my boyfriend who hates curry powder loved it. I substituted 2 tablespoons additional water in place of 2 TBS of the oil to cut a few calories. I didn't miss the extra oil!

Way yummy! I used turkey bacon for lower fat and the results were just as tasty. Thanks for the great recipe

We aren't crazy about curry to begin with, but I still thought this salad was very good. My husband didn't like it at all just because of his curry hang-up!

This salad was a hit at my boyfriend's birthday party. Since he is vegetarian, I substituted the bacon with tempeh "fakin' bacon" which tastes closer to the real thing than any vegi-meat around and has a nice crunchy consistancy. I also added cherry tomatoes. Yummy... I will be making it again.

So yummy! I am not a big curry fan, but my husband is and I tried this one out for him. Even I thought it was wonderful. I think I will add cherry tomatoes nextime for a little color and texture.
