Wilted Spinach Salad
Serves 8
Very comfortable as an Entree Salad, this hearty spinach salad also goes by the name Johann Strauss after the famous composer. It's often prepared tableside in upscale restaurants that specialize in tableside cooking but just as elegant made in the kitchen. I happen to love this recipe using Nino's Maple Bacon and Wild Turkey Bourbon.
