Last week, I gave you my husband’s favorite steak recipe: Steaks with Bacon-Mushroom Bourbon Sauce. Unlike most of the recipes I share with you, that one takes some time and effort to make, but it’s well worth it! I also teased that I’d be giving you a recipe this week for his favorite side dish…one that is so simple to make that we eat it all the time and I’ve been making it for years. Like I said it’s simple to make, but it tastes like you put a ton of effort into it. This spinach salad recipe is a hit with the kids too! They refer to it as sour spinach.
Spinach Salad Recipe:
Hot Spinach Salad With Bacon and Vinegar
- 4 slices bacon, diced into small pieces
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 bag (at least 10 ounces) fresh spinach
- 5 green onions, sliced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain, leaving a teaspoon or so of bacon grease. Stir in vinegar and sugar. Heat (stirring constantly) until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
- Add the spinach and onions to the bacon mixture. Toss 1 to 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Couldn’t be easier right?! And if you are looking for more yummy side dishes, try my board Side Dishes on Pinterest.
