Baby Spinach & Bacon Salad Recipe

Place spinach greens in a large mixing bowl. Remove any undesirable leaves or large stems. Add croutons. Set aside.

Make dressing. Blend together vinegar, water, mustard and SPLENDA® Granulated in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.

Finely slice bacon into small strips. Place in a medium saucepan and fry over medium-high heat until crispy (approx. 3-4 minutes).

Add onion and garlic and cook over medium-high heat 1-2 minutes.

Add vinegar mixture and simmer 1-2 minutes. Pour over spinach and croutons. Toss well. Serve immediately.


Regular fresh spinach may be used in place of baby spinach but will result in a less delicate salad.
