I hate to be the downer but I really did not like this recipe. Maybe it was the bacon grease dressing, but it was just "blah." I prefer a spinach salad with red onions and croutons in addition to the bacon, eggs, and mushrooms.

I love this recipe. I had spinach salad at a restaurant in one of the local casinos and couldn't get enough. This recipe was every bit as good and so easy to make. You may need to adjust the sugar to taste. I also added some sugared pecans. Eat while hot for the best taste. Next time I think I will try it with Balsamic vinegar.

Very tasty. I used balsamic vinegar as opposed to cider vinegar because I didn't have the cider.

I have made this recipe a number of times and it always gets rave reviews. I also like to add avocado slices and roasted nuts (either pecans or almonds) to the recipe for variation.

I really like this recipe. The first time I made it, though, I found that there wasn't nearly enough dressing, so I've doubled it ever since. Even then, it's a little sparse. Nonetheless, this is really tasty. I served it a couple weeks ago, along with a pork roast and oven-roasted potatoes, and our guest (who eats like a bird) really chowed down on this dish. Very, very good. Thanks, Monique.

I loved this salad!! Great flavor too!I made all ahead and poured the hot dressing over and tossed just before serving. Very Good.

this was really good! i have made it several times since trying it for the first time. i add more bacon than called for and do not always break the stems off of the spinach, but that doesnt matter. my husband likes it too (has even requested it) and he doesnt like raw spinach!
