This is the best dressing I have ever had. I used onions and garlic since I didn't have shallots, and roasted pine nuts instead of pecans.

Thank you so much !!!!!!

I have never been a fan of spinach until I tried this dressing. I did not have shallots, so I did not use them. Instead of mushrooms, I used carrots, and instead of pecans I used walnuts. Very Yummie! I am also single, so I am hoping the dressing stays for awhile in the frige. Thanks!

Delicious...and easy. Most of the ingredients I have on hand. I added egg for a little more substance and ate it as a meal.

Make sure to use fresh bacon! I also added feta, which added a nice creamy texture to the salad.

I made this for Christmas dinner. There was not even a spoonfull left! Everyone loved it! I added boiled eggs and feta cheese and it gave it a creamier texture. The dressing was outstanding! I think you could reduce it down to a thicker consistency and it would make a great sauce for grilled chicken or grilled salmon served over the fresh spinach salad.
