I love simple salads. I grew up with eating salad with simple variations on the oil-vinegar dressing. Most of the time it was just olive oil and regular vinegar. Nowadays there are so many types of oil and vinegar that I just have to try different variations. For this one I tried grapeseed oil and raspberry infused balsamic vinegar. Quite a delicious combination! And, of course, the bacon enhances the flavor with its very tasty presence. Enjoy!
-1 lb bacon
-10 oz baby spinach
-1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
-1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
-1/4 cup grapeseed oil
-1/8 cup raspberry infused balsamic vinegar
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
Cut the bacon into large pieces and fry until nice and crisp. Drain on paper towels.
Once that's done, mix all salad ingredients together in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk dressing ingredients. Pour over salad and mix well to coat evenly. Enjoy!
