A wilted spinach salad, simple and nourishing, offers an excellent way to incorporate fresh greens onto your supper table. Heating the spinach very slightly, as in this wilted spinach salad recipe requires, provides a dual purpose: not only does it make the dish more suitable for cold days when fresh, raw greens can be unappealing, but it also helps to mitigate the effects of oxalic acid – an anti-nutrient naturally found in spinach and other greens.

  • 4 slices
  • 1/4 cup
    prepared honey mustard dressing
  • 4 cups
    baby spinach, fresh
  • 1 small
    red onion, sliced into rounds
  • 1 small
    apple, sliced thin
  • 1 cup
    cooked chicken, chopped into bit-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup
    raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons
    Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tablespoons
    unrefined extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons
    raw cider vinegar
  1. Fry four slices bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon from the pan, turn off the heat and gently stir ¼ cup honey mustard dressing into the rendered bacon grease. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Toss remaining ingredients together, garnish with fried bacon and dress with the mixture of bacon grease and honey mustard dressing.
  3. Prepare the honey mustard dressing by whisking together raw honey, Dijon-style mustard, unrefined extra virgin olive oil and raw cider vinegar. You can always substitute this dressing with a prepared dressing of your choice.
