Winter Salad

I love this salad!

It's flavors are deeper, more rustic.  Like winter...
Salads are a great addition to your dinner, or as a main course for lunch.  This one doesn't hold back.  It uses ingredients that are winter fresh.  In-season ingredients that are easy to come by.

Spinach, bacon, pecans, dried cranberries, parmesan...all drizzled with a light lemon vinaigrette.  Yum!

Make one for your dinner tonight!

2 cups fresh Spinach
