Hot bacon dressing is awesome and I love Poppyseed Dressing. I posted a recipe for it here a few days ago. Perfect on a spinach, walnut, pear or apple salad.

I love those as well. Orange type citrus goes great with spinach.

While I LOVE a good spinach salad, I don't get to enjoy them that often since these days the only spinach you can get at the supermarket is the insipid little baby flat-leaf type. Unless I grow it myself or can find it at the farmers market in season, gone are the days of the wonderful thick heavily-savoyed spinach that can actually stand up to a hot bacon or thick chunky blue cheese dressing without wilting into a soggy mess.

That said - when I DO have a lovely crop of old-fashioned savoy spinach in the garden or can get some at the market, my favorite spinach salad consists of rinsed & dried savoy spinach - touch stems removed - topped with freshly cooked chopped bacon, wedges (or slices) of hard-boiled egg, sliced white button mushrooms, & whichever dressing (hot bacon or cold blue cheese) I'm in the mood for. A real meal in itself!!

Yields: 1 ½ c

4 oz bacon, diced
2 oz onion, diced
½ c water
½ c cider vinegar
2 oz sugar
1 t salt
pepper to taste
To thicken:
½ oz cornstarch
¼ c water

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, brown the bacon. When the bacon is done to your liking, add the onions. Sauté over medium-high heat until the onion turns translucent, and the pan has a brown coating. Add the water and cider vinegar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, scraping the pan bottom and sides to deglaze the pan. When the liquid begins to boil, add the sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir to dissolve. While the liquid returns to a boil, combine the cornstarch and the remaining water. Add to the pan to thicken the dressing. Serve warm over spinach greens or spring mix.

For a real treat, use pancetta instead of bacon, and use port instead of water

PD, your recipe looks much like mine except I don't thicken mine. I just pour the ot dressing over spinach, etc. It is really good over garden lettuce when it is very young and tender.
