Until I was in my 20's I hated spinach with a passion. I refused to eat it in any way, shape or form.
I can't remember what dish made me change my attitude towards this wonderful vegetable, but now it's one of my favorite foods, and this salad is one of my favorite ways to prepare it.
1 bag spinach
1/4 lb mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
4 slices bacon chopped
2 tsp sugar
3 tb cider vinegar
3 tb water
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Place the spinach and mushrooms in your serving bowl.
In a medium pan, fry the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towel. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bacon fat in the pan. Stir over medium heat until the dressing is hot and the sugar has dissolved.
Pour over the spinach, toss well and serve right away.
