WARM SPINACH SALAD with APPLES and BACON

 

Serve with a Honey-Flavored Specialty Beer, such as Michelob Honey Lager.

 

1 small Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

½ cup dried cranberries, chopped                                                       

1 package (10 ounces) baby spinach

⅓ cup balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons cranberry juice

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons sour cream

2 bacon slices, drained, and crumbled

 

  1. In a large bowl, combine the apple, onion, cranberries, and spinach and toss to mix well.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, cranberry juice, mustard, salt, and pepper over medium heat.  Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute.  Remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream.  Drizzle the warm dressing over the salad and toss well.  Sprinkle with the bacon.  Serve immediately.

 

Cook’s Tip: Toss the salad while the dressing is still hot to wilt the spinach leaves.

 

Makes 6 servings.
