Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing

I really enjoy a good spinach salad. So today I tossed this super food with hard boiled eggs, crumbled bacon, and a delicious, warm bacon dressing.

Spinach Salad With Warm Bacon Dressing
3/4 lb. -1 lb. Baby spinach, washed and spun dry
2 hard boiled eggs, finely chopped
4 strips bacon, diced (I use uncured)
2 T. canola or olive oil
1 shallot, finely diced
3 tsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
3 T. white balsamic vinegar
Pinch salt
1/8 tsp. Fresh cracked black pepper

In a small sauce pan, cook diced bacon until crispy. Remove bacon from pan to a paper towel. To remaining bacon drippings (about 2 T.) add canola or olive oil, diced shallot, sugar, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. On low heat, gently whisk the dressing until smooth and warmed through. In a large salad bowl toss together, spinach, eggs, bacon pieces, and warmed dressing. Serve immediately.
A note about this dressing– all measurements can be adjusted to your own taste. I always add a pinch more sugar and vinegar than stated above, as I like my dressing, for this particular salad, on the sweeter/vinegary side.
