Apple & Bacon Spinach Salad

Use a very sweet, crisp apple in this salad. I like using a fresh gala apple sprinkled with a little lemon juice to keep it from turning brown.
  • 1/4 c. apple cider
  • 3 T. cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. rosemary leaves, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 5 c. fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1 apple, cored and peeled
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (you can use turkey bacon if you'd like)
  • 2 oz. crumbled feta cheese

Combine the apple cider, cider vinegar, rosemary leaves and salt in a small screw-top jar. Shake vigorously to blend.

Arrange the spinach leaves, apple slices, crumbled bacon and feta cheese on two plates. If you won't be serving the salads immediately, sprinkle the apple slices with lemon juice before adding to the salad. Pour the dressing over the salads and serve.
