Ingredients

  • 1 cup Red Wine Vinegar Poppy Seed Dressing
  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/2 pound baby spinach, we used triple washed organic
  • 2.5 ounces fully cooked bacon, or approximately 10 slices cooked and drained ( 1 package)
  • 3/4 pounds red grapes, rinsed and drained (approximately 2 cups)
  • 1/2 medium red or purple onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Instructions

  • Make a batch of our Red Wine Vinegar Poppy Seed Dressing (recipe link below) and allow it to chill in the fridge for 1/2 hour.
  • Boil and chop the eggs (link for perfect boiled eggs below).
  • While the eggs are cooking: Wash the spinach (if not pre-washed), cook and drain the bacon, rinse and drain the grapes, thinly slice the onion and chop the pecans.
  • To plate the salad: Start with a generous handful of spinach, then evenly divide the other ingredients between the plates. Drizzle the salad with the poppy seed dressing and serve cold.

Notes

  • Pork-free option: Switch out the bacon for some roasted or crispy chicken pieces. We had this salad with chicken and it is very filling and a healthier dinner.
