This spinach salad is a crazy delicious salad. It combines crispy thick-cut bacon with baby spinach, boiled eggs, mushrooms, and a warm bacon dressing. You are always welcome to experiment with ingredients and add shrimp, apples or even strawberries.
- 10 oz spinach leaves
- 2 eggs
- 3 1/2 oz champignons

- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
