Enjoy Bacon Lover's Spinach Salad for two! Baby spinach leaves topped with hard-boiled eggs, red onion, crisp bacon, and warm bacon dressing!
Hard boil the eggs. Let cool, then peel. Cook bacon in large skillet until very crispy. It cooks much faster chopped into small pieces! Once the bacon is crispy, remove to paper towels to cool. Set aside a generous Tablespoon of bacon crumbles to add to warm bacon dressing later, keeping the rest set aside for the salad itself. NOTE: LEAVE 1 Tablespoon of the bacon grease in the skillet for the salad dressing (discard the rest).
Cook chopped red onion in reserved Tablespoon of bacon grease in skillet 3-4 minutes on medium heat. Stir occasionally. Add apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, water, black pepper and Dijon mustard; stir to combine. Cook 3-4 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Dressing will thicken slightly as water cooks away. During last minute of cooking, add reserved Tablespoon of crumbled crisp bacon to salad dressing. Dressing is served warm.
Line plates with baby spinach. Evenly distribute thin slices of red onion and remaining bacon crumbles over spinach. Slice each hard-boiled egg into thin rounds, and decoratively fan slices out on top of each serving. Spoon warm bacon dressing over the top of each salad, serve and enjoy!
