    Spinach Bacon Tomato Salad

    I was trying out various takes on a warm spinach salad, but the weather is finally turning (warm) here. So while I usually eat spinach mixed in tarts or quiches, this salad is a nice change from the romaine and spring mixes. It’s kind of like a BLT salad (Bacon Lettuce Tomato). And it goes great with Parmesan croutons.

    You’ll need a bunch of fresh spinach, some sweet cherry tomatoes, and a few slices of bacon. I’m also working on some new salad dressings (like Caesar salad dressing), however this salad goes well with honey mustard dressing, or the lemon mustard dressing posted below.

      add to a bowl…
      1 TBSP dijon
      1 small clove garlic, minced
      squeeze from half a lemon
      2 tsp Worcestershire
      1/4 tsp anchovy paste
      salt and pepper
      stir together and drizzle in 1/4 cup olive oil. add shredded parm to dressing, then toss with romaine and croutons.

      Hey Lacey! Wow, must try that. That looks great. And I have anchovy paste that I haven’t cracked open yet (I was going to try it without, but now…) Not sure about the W sauce. I’ll have to look at the ingredients.

      Worcestershire sauce isn’t legal on SCD, but I’ve been known to use a few squirts for my husband. However, he’s been on SCD for almost 4 years and has been symptom and med free for almost that long. I’m trying this!

      Interestingly, Worcestershire sauce is actually fermented.

      Any ideas on where to find scd legal bacon? This looks so good and I can’t wait to try it with bacon (haven’t had bacon forever). Thanks for all your amazing recipes they are God sent right now.

      Hi Sarah. I swear by this brand: http://www.organicprairie.coop/products/pork/product/uncured-hardwood-smoked-bacon-fresh/
      I use their ham and bacon all the time. Another option, although time consuming, it to make your own. I’ve done it and it’s not hard (but it’s not smoked). I buy a slab of pork belly, slice and season it, and place it in the refrigerator for a few days. You can also freeze bacon – which I do a lot.
