This warm spinach potato salad with a bacon vinaigrette is a perfect side dish recipe of fresh ingredients and flavors!
One “date night” my dear friend Donna and I decided to surprise our husbands with a cooking class at Sur La Table. The guys were not too thrilled about taking a class. Then they saw the menu and when we told them they got to eat the meal, they were all in! One of the dishes we prepared that night was this Warm Spinach Potato Salad with Bacon Vinaigrette. Recently I served it as a side dish with my Butterflied and Marinated Leg of Lamb and it was a delicious combination of flavors!
And, let’s be honest! Bacon is the bomb! This vinaigrette just really kicks it up a notch! I also love whole grain mustard which adds that tinge of flavor and is the perfect addition with spinach and potatoes.
Do you like to make things ahead of time making entertaining easier? This recipe can be made a few hours ahead of time and tossed with the spinach right before serving! Add this salad or serve it as a side dish; it is always a hit!
