Spinach Salad w/ Apple Cider and Bacon Dressing

The apple cider reduction is the key to the wonderful depth of flavor in this salad. The few extra steps are well worth the results.


4 slices lean bacon, chopped fine
2 Tbsp Litehouse® Instantly Fresh Spring Onion
1/2 cup finely chopped apple
2 Tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp Dijon style mustard
1 Tbsp olive oil 1 pound fresh spinach, discard coarse stems, wash and spin dry 
1 1/2 cups Litehouse® Honey Crisp Apple Cider
Litehouse® Gala Apple Cider
Litehouse® Fuji Apple Vinaigrette 





In a large skillet cook the bacon, stirring often until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Discard all but 1 Tbsp of pan drippings (option: wipe out skillet with paper towel, add 1 Tbsp olive oil). Add the spring onions and apple, stirring for 1 minute over moderate heat. Add the vinegar, cider, salt & pepper to taste and boil, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, or until it is reduced to about 1/2 cup. Whisk in the mustard and the oil. In a large bowl toss the spinach with the warm dressing until it is just wilted and sprinkle the salad with bacon. Serve immediately.
