Today’s Recipe – Warm and Loaded Spinach Salad
This is my favorite way to eat spinach salad. It’s a little bit warm, and a whole lot loaded up with bacon, hard boiled eggs, onions, mushrooms and cheese. It’s way more than a salad – it’s a meal!
I love a good spinach salad any time of the year, but the spinach salad I crave when the weather gets cool is a very different creature than the one I prefer in the summer. Summer is for berries and a sweet poppyseed dressing on top of my baby spinach.

2. It’s packed with protein, so not only do you get all the veggies. You’re also full afterward.
3. It’s warm. Spinach is one of those greens that stands up to a little bit of heat without turning into mush. I love the combination of texture and warm greens with sweet caramelized onions and the saltiness from the bacon and warm Halloumi cheese……..
