"This is a French-style spinach salad that should satisfy even the meat-lovers at the table. Features bacon lardons, which are simply crouton-size pieces of slab bacon, fried until crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside."

  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.

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

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, crumb...

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...

delicious and so quick to prepare...I didn't have any curry at home, but that didn't spoil the salad...will definetely do it again :) but with a bit less oil

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 text...

I liked it, but then, I like vinaigrettes. My husband didn't think much of it, he likes creamy dressings. Even the curry didn't save it for him. We both are curry lovers.
