Wilted Spinach Salad a.k.a.your daily calcium requirement

Wilted Spinach Salad with
Feta, Red Onion, Dried Cranberry, and Toasted Pecans

red onion, sliced
2 bunches of spinach
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
salt & pepper
1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped
6 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 lb bacon

To toast pecans scatter them on a baking sheet and place in a 350 degree oven, stir after 4 minutes and bake for an additional 3 – 5 minutes watching closely. There is a fine line between toasted and burnt.

Cook bacon, drain and crumble.

Toss everything in a big bowl except oil. Take grease from bacon or you can use the olive oil. Heat up slightly and toss salad with the oil. The heat from the oil will wilt the spinach. This is good, it's called wilted spinach salad ;)
