Directions

In a skillet add the bacon and cook over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Roughly chop and set aside.

Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of fat from the skillet. Heat the remaining fat over medium-high heat, add the shallots and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Whisk in the vinegar, desired amount of mustard, and salt and pepper, to taste. Scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the skillet, bring to a simmer, then remove the skillet from the heat.

For the salad, in a large salad bowl, toss together the spinach, mushrooms, bacon and onion. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine. Serve warm

After reading the recipe and looking at the picture, the salad reminds me a lot of the wilted lettuce salad my grandma used to make. Have not had it since she passed in the 60's. Sure would like to have it again, but not sure how she made it.

Used Paula's recipe of Low Country Boil for a neighborhood cookout. They'd never had it before. It was a real hit and so easy.
