Spinach Salad

Sometimes, salad isn't just salad. This is one of those times.

{Spinach Salad}
Honey Dressing
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon paprike
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated
1/2 cup olive oil

Heat all the dressing ingredients until sugar melts and is stirrable. Add oil. Shake and chill.

Fresh spinach
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
red onion slices
sliced almonds
1 can mandarin oranges or fresh tangerine

Toss together fresh spinach, onion and oranges. Brown almonds in bacon drippings (watch carefully so almonds don't burn). Add crumbed bacon and almonds to salad. Pour on dressing just before serving. 

This salad isn't "light" and it probably won't help with any slimming new year's resolutions. But hey, this salad is worth it. To a new year filled with bacon and goodness!
